Texas man to serve 15 years of jail time for stabbing wife

A South Texas resident will spend 15 years in prison for stabbing his wife for over 30 times a few days after she filed for a divorce.

A San Antonio judge sentenced 40-year-old Roberto Barron on Thursday, October 10 as part of a no contest plea deal on charges of aggravated assault of a family member causing serious bodily injury.

Barron assaulted his wife Theresa with a hunting knife in 2010, outside her daughter’s school. She had just dropped off their daughter.

Barron ceased the attack when a bystander pointed a gun at him and told him to drop his weapon.
