SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - An Anaheim man who stabbed two people during a 2008 showing of the horror movie “The Signal” has been resentenced to 22 years to life in prison.

Steven Walter Robinson Jr. was sentenced Friday.

He was given the same punishment after his 2009 conviction, but an appeals court overturned that verdict. That court ruled the trial judge erred in not telling jurors how a person’s mental condition can affect their judgment.

Robinson was retried and convicted last year.

He had been asked to leave a Fullerton theater twice - and had received a refund - after it was discovered he brought it alcohol and psychedelic mushrooms.

Authorities say he sneaked back in and attacked two strangers.

One suffered permanent loss of the use of an arm, the other nerve damage.
