WALTON, Ore. (AP) — A man who stabbed an ex-girlfriend west of Eugene was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison.

David Lucius pleaded guilty in court last week to first-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon and stalking, KEZI-TV reported.

He will also complete three years of post-prison supervision.

In October 2018, Lucius stabbed Adrienne Wurts over a dozen times.

Wurts said she had gone to meet Lucius in Walton so she could get her car title from him.

She said when he went to give her a hug, he started stabbing her. Wurts said she fought back, her hands were injured and she needed stitches.

Wurts said Monday she is doing well and that she hopes any woman in an abusive relationship realizes that it’s time to walk away.
