VERNON, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man accused of stabbing his estranged wife repeatedly and intending to light the car they were riding in on fire has been found guilty of related charges.

A judge found John Corver guilty Wednesday of attempted murder, assault and kidnapping.

Corver was accused of stabbing his wife, Kim Langlands, during two separate April 2014 incidents, nearly killing her, and of placing a wick in the fuel tank of the car. The judge said Corver could not find anything to ignite the rag.

The 53-year old Bolton man since has pleaded no contest to being a persistent dangerous felony offender, which would double some of the sentences.

He faces up to 190 years in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 11.
