WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - A Westchester County man has pleaded guilty to attempted murder for stabbing his former companion at a Metro-North station.

Prosecutors said 52-year-old Sidney Brown, of Mount Vernon, attacked Deborah Henry in the parking lot of the Irvington Metro-North station on April 8.

Numerous witnesses saw Brown stab Henry repeatedly. They included Irvington Fire Chief Chris DePaoli, who was driving by the station and intervened to stop the attack.

Brown slashed his own throat as he was being subdued by police. Both Henry and Brown were treated at hospitals for serious injuries.

Henry and Brown were former domestic partners and have three children together.

Brown pleaded guilty on Friday. He faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison when he is sentenced Jan. 7.
