Madman sent to slammer

From the NY Post:

The hulking “monster” who went on a stabbing rampage in Queens last year was sentenced to 25 years to life for killing an elderly man and stabbing the victim’s wife and another woman.

David Williams left Joan Purcell “overwhelmed with pain” when he killed her husband and stabbed her in January 2009.

Williams, who also stabbed Juhn Fook as he ran amok, pleaded guilty to murder and two counts of assault in April.

He told State Supreme Court Justice Gregory Lasak that he had no history of mental problems or prescribed psychotropics before the assault and apologized to his victims, his family and his community.

“Something went terribly wrong that I cannot account for,” Williams said. “Whatever sentence I am given, I hope that it should start to serve as a healing process for the victims.”

He was sentenced to 25 years to life on the murder count and 25 years on each of the assault counts which will run concurrently to the longer stretch.
