LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) - A 21-year-old Evans woman has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for cutting the neck of a 64-year-old man she met online.

According to the Loveland Reporter-Herald (http://goo.gl/4yrozF ), Jenessa Rosenbach pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree assault, just two weeks before her trial was set to begin. Rosenbach, who struck a deal with prosecutors, originally faced attempted murder and first-degree assault charges in connection with the stabbing in Loveland on July 5.

Investigators say she stabbed Craig Janda in the neck at his home. The two met on Craigslist through an advertisement Rosenbach had posted.

Loveland police detective Patrick Musselman testified that Janda and Rosenbach had exchanged 40 to 50 messages and met in-person once before the attack.
