BOUND BROOK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey man has been found guilty of aggravated assault and another charge in the 2013 stabbing of a 44-year-old man in his home.

Authorities said the victim was discovered at a Bound Brook residence on Jan. 14, 2013 with a large open wound to his abdomen. They said the victim told them that 21-year-old Ernesto Azana-Pure attacked him from behind.

NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/1FENeyY ) that Azana-Pure was found not guilty Monday of first-degree attempted murder but was found guilty on charges of second-degree aggravated assault and third-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

The Bound Brook man is facing 10 years in prison with 85 percent served before parole eligibility. His attorney did not comment on the verdict.
