CHESTER, S.C. (AP) - A Chester man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for stabbing his ex-girlfriend last year in the back, severing her spinal cord.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports (https://bit.ly/1Rw06X6 ) that 27-year-old Anthony R. Jennings was sentenced this week after pleading guilty to assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and burglary.

Prosecutors said Jennings attacked the mother of his child in August. Jennings had two previous convictions for domestic violence against the same woman and had been barred from the victim’s property.

Because of the August attack, the victim spent a month in the hospital and had to learn to walk again after recovering from her injuries.
