The young boy critically injured in a stabbing attack in Rochester last year has died at a hospital in Nebraska. Xavier Njemanze had been undergoing therapy at Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln, Neb., for injuries he suffered when he was stabbed at his mother’s home.
A Rochester man has been sentenced to 27 years in prison after pleading guilty to stabbing a 2-year-old boy.
Around 6 a.m. on the morning of March 1, Chika Njemanze awoke to her son Xavier’s cries. But it wasn’t the normal sound of a toddler’s hunger, but rather a shriek of panic and pain. She would find him bleeding profusely after being brutally stabbed by a former boyfriend.
