SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A Woodburn man who confessed to stabbing his mother’s boyfriend has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison.

The Statesman Journal reports (https://is.gd/UN2RLE) 28-year-old Roberto Chacon accepted a deal from prosecutors Thursday in which he pleaded guilty to assault and burglary in exchange for other charges being dismissed.

Chacon told investigators said he committed the crime out of jealousy. The boyfriend was hugging Chacon’s mother, and not allowing him to do so.

The boyfriend was stabbed in the chest and hand. Hospital staff told deputies the man’s sternum stopped the knife from reaching his internal organs. The cut on his hand required surgery.

Chacon was arrested on assault and drug charges in 2013 and was sentenced to two years in prison.
