Man Sentenced to 20 Years for Repeatedly Stabbing Broome Resident
A man has received a lengthy prison sentence after he admitted he stabbed a 71-year-old town of Barker resident several times.
30-year-old Matthew Bonser of Nanticoke, Pennsylvania was sentenced to 20 years in state prison. In October, Bonser pleaded guilty to attempted murder, assault and burglary.
Authorities said Bonser broke into a home on April 17 and repeatedly stabbed a person who lived there. He then entered a home on Route 11 and threatened someone to steal car keys.
Broome County sheriff's deputies and state police pursued the stolen vehicle. The high-speed chase ended when the car slammed into a pole and another vehicle on Colesville Road in Kirkwood. The 87-year-old man who was driving the other car was seriously hurt.
