Man sentenced in attacks on ex’s family members in LA

November 29, 2018

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man has been sentenced to 70 years to life in prison for stabbing his ex-girlfriend’s mother, 11-month-old sister and aunt at their Los Angeles home.

Jorge Gomez was convicted earlier this month of several felonies including attempted murder.

City News Service reports the 23-year-old was sentenced on Wednesday.

Investigators said Gomez had a knife and lunged toward his ex-girlfriend’s 3-year-old sister, who was shielded from injury by the aunt. She suffered six stab wounds and facial fractures.

Gomez then led police on a chase that ended with a four-hour standoff.

His former girlfriend was not home at the time of the attack in Dec 2016.
