A man who stabbed a woman in East Syracuse and attempted to flee the country, sparking a manhunt, has been sentenced.

Todd J. Corron was sentenced to 15 years in prison in Onondaga County Court Thursday morning, after pleading guilty to assault in the first degree last month.

Before he was sentenced, the victim in the case read a letter before the court, and Corron apologized for his actions.

Police said Corron stabbed a 25-year-old woman in the neck during a dispute back in March.

He then fled, leading to a manhunt, which ended when he was caught by U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the Peace Bridge in Buffalo.
