Man convicted in Craven County stabbing

Posted:
NEW BERN, N.C. -

A man accused of stabbing a woman off Liliana Court and then taking off in her car has been convicted.

It happened in April 2012.

The woman was airlifted to a hospital after the stabbing just before 10:00 PM, said Cpt. Joe Heckman of the Craven County Sheriff's Office. He said the victim wounds did not appear life threatening and the "incident was domestic-related."

After deputies sent out information on the stabbing, New Bern Police found the suspect vehicle and further investigation led police to the suspect.

35-year-old Carl Wesley King pleaded guilty to Assault with a Deadly Weapon with Intent to Kill Inflicting Serious Injury.

Court documents showed King had an argument with the female victim, and after the argument had ended, asked her to drive him to the store. They had not gotten very far when he pulled out a pocket knife and began to stab the victim repeatedly.

King was sentenced to 10-14 years in prison and ordered to pay over $ 18,000 in restitution to the victim and the medical providers.

District Attorney Scott Thomas said, "Violent offenders need to be in prison, and that is where Mr. King will be for the next 10 to 14 years. Our communities are safer when dangerous people are removed from the streets and placed in prison."
