Cayo man gets fifteen years for stabbing girlfriend

Story PictureToday in the Supreme Court, twenty year old Abdiel Sandoval was sentenced to fifteen years behind bars after he was found guilty of the attempted murder of his girlfriend, Tracy Donis, who was only sixteen years old at the time.

The crime occurred in San Ignacio on September third, 2005. Sandoval reportedly slashed the young woman’s neck and then stabbed her in the back, leaving her paralyzed. Sandoval attacked his victim after she reportedly told him that she wanted to end their relationship.

In sentencing Sandoval, Justice Adolph Lucas told him that he could have gotten life in prison for the attempted murder but because he had no previous convictions he would be sent to jail for fifteen years.
