A 25-year-old Iowa man has been given 60 to 90 years in a Nebraska prison for stabbing his former girlfriend and her stepmother.
Brandon Hendon of Essex, Iowa was sentenced Monday in Sarpy County District Court. He pleaded guilty to two counts of assault and one weapons count. In return, prosecutors dropped two other assault charges, a burglary charge and another weapons count.
Prosecutors say Hendon stabbed 18-year-old Jaimee Kirsch and 31-year-old Jessica Walker after he broke into Walker's La Vista apartment on March 23. Three others in the apartment, including two children, were not injured.
Hendon was arrested later that morning in Plattsmouth.
