COLUMBIA HEIGHTS, Minn. (WCCO) – A Columbia Heights man was sentenced to 163 months in prison for attempted murder.

Antonio Robinson, 39, pleaded guilty to attempted murder in the second-degree from a knife attack on his girlfriend on February 19, 2012.

Robinson stabbed his girlfriend several times with a large knife, causing her serious injuries.

The attack took place in their Columbia Heights home while children were present. Robinson was already on probation from a previous domestic violence offense.
