BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A man serving seven years in prison for attempted murder in the beating and stabbing of a Bismarck man last year has now been ordered to pay nearly $14,000 in restitution for medical bills.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1j2DbBC ) that 34-year-old Jose Osorio pleaded guilty in February in the June 2013 assault of Rafael Zayas. Authorities say Zayas was beaten with dumbbells and stabbed nine times.

Judge Bruce Haskell ordered the restitution even though he said it was unlikely Osorio will ever be able to pay the money because he is likely to be deported following his prison term.

Osorio’s co-defendant in the case, Kelvin Oviedo, already has been deported after being convicted of misdemeanor hindering law enforcement.
