PHOENIX (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 8.5 years in prison for stabbing his mother at a Phoenix restaurant and then attempting to behead her last year.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say Michael Lee Hansen was sentenced Thursday.

He had pleaded guilty in June to attempted second-degree murder after being arrested in July 2013.

According to police, he allegedly punched his mother, knocked her unconscious and stabbed her around her neck and hands.

Police said he told police he hit her and was attempting to cut off her head.
