WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Warren man convicted of stabbing his ex-girlfriend was sentenced to 16 years in prison.
Jacob Asbury appeared for his sentencing hearing before Judge Peter Kontos in Trumbull County Court of Common Pleas on Monday. Asbury has been in jail since his arrest in October on felonious assault and attempted murder charges.
Investigators said Asbury went to the victim’s house to try to reconcile with her, but when she told him to leave, he started choking her and stabbed her several times. The woman was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital after the attack, where she was treated for her injuries.
