BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Buffalo man who stabbed two people in a Kensington Ave. apartment will spend 16 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to two counts of Attempted Murder.
Dennis Howard, 26, stabbed two people, a man and a woman, in an apartment this past October. The stabbings occurred after the female victim came home and found her apartment burglarized.
After the woman called a neighbor to come help check for intruders, Howard repeatedly stabbed the neighbor in the throat. He stabbed the woman multiple times after this, but both victims survived.
Howard faced a maximum sentence of 50 years in prison, but did not receive this punishment.
In addition to jail time, he was also sentenced to five years of post-release supervision.
