COQUILLE, Oregon — An Oregon man who stabbed his female cousin in the abdomen multiple times with a large knife has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison.
Jason Simons of Myrtle Point accepted a plea agreement in which he pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in connection with the October stabbing that happened during an argument.
The Coos Bay World reports (http://is.gd/eoVYSZ) the 37-year-old man had been accused of attempted murder, but prosecutors dismissed that charge in the plea deal.
