Man sentenced to 10 years in prison for stabbing father

February 22, 2019

BLOOMFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man has been sent to prison for 10 years for stabbing his father in the chest.

The Hartford Courant reports that 36-year-old Carlos Cameron was sentenced Thursday after he pleaded guilty to first-degree assault.

Police say Cameron stabbed his 68-year-old father in Bloomfield in March 2018 after a dispute over a ride. The fight was witnessed by a 12-year-old relative.

Cameron originally faced an attempted murder charge after his father was left in critical condition.

Prosecutor Vicki Melchiorre says Cameron had a difficult relationship with his father, but he did not have the right to stab him.

Cameron’s lawyer says his client acknowledges that as well.
