LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Lincoln man has been given up to seven years in prison for stabbing his brother in January.

Lancaster County District Judge Jodi Nelson called 28-year-old Steven E. Caldwell dangerous before sentencing him on Monday to three to seven years in prison. The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1rhF9FA ) he was given credit for more than 240 days served.

Caldwell pleaded no contest to attempted second-degree assault and felony child abuse in connection to his brother’s stabbing on Jan. 17. His brother’s son was also present during the attack.

Court records say Caldwell told authorities he was drunk when he got into a physical fight with his brother and stabbed him in the stomach with a kitchen knife. His brother survived.
