Man faces prison in Ohio fraternity stabbing

DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) – A 24-year-old man is facing sentencing next month after a jury found him guilty of attempted murder for stabbing a central Ohio college class president while he slept in his fraternity house.

The jury in Delaware County in suburban Columbus convicted Nicholas Eber Friday of additional charges of felonious assault and aggravated burglary in the attack on Ohio Wesleyan University class president Anthony Peddle in May. He faces up to 11 years in prison when he’s sentenced Jan. 26.

Prosecutors said Eber went to the Chi Phi fraternity house at about 3:30 a.m. on May 3 and stabbed the 21-year-old Peddle in the chest as he slept. They say Eber blamed Peddle for his breakup with his boyfriend.

Peddle recovered from his injuries and testified at the trial this week.
