Christopher Denigris, of New Britain, is facing 20 years in prison after stabbing his common-law wife and two police officers.
The New Britain main charged with attempted murder after stabbing his wife and two police officers in 2012 has been sentenced to 20 years in prison, according to the state Division of Criminal Justice.
Christopher Denigris, 53, was arrested in June 2012 after stabbing his common-law wife and two New Britain police officers who responded to the scene, then stealing one of the officers’ cars and crashing it into a fence down the road, police said after the incident.
Denigris was arrested and charged with several offenses, including criminal attempt to commit murder, first-degree assault, assault on police, kidnapping, first-degree larceny and criminal violation of a protective order.
Court records show this was not the first domestic incident involving Denigris and his wife. Information presented in court revealed Denigris told the victim he was not going back to jail and would take “as many people as he could” down with him.
He was held on a $2 million bond and was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Tuesday.
