Man facing 30-year sentence for ex-girlfriend’s stabbing
DANIELSON, Conn. (AP) — Prosecutors are seeking a minimum 30-year prison sentence for a Connecticut man convicted of stabbing his former girlfriend.
The Norwich Bulletin reports that a jury previously found 55-year-old Angel Alvarez guilty of attempted murder, assault and violation of a protective order in connection with the September 2016 stabbing.
Prosecutors say the woman was stabbed three times in the back with a kitchen knife at her apartment in Willimantic.
Prosecutors say Alvarez harbored deep contempt for the victim and “intended to let her suffer and die.”
He previously rejected an offer to plead guilty in exchange for 15 years in prison.
Alvarez’s sentencing was originally set for Wednesday, but it was pushed back to May 13 due to scheduling issues with his attorney.
