Grand Island Man Gets Prison for Stabbing Outside St. Mary's Cathedral

Aslin Nabarro

A Grand Island man has been sentenced to 30 to 40 years behind bars for stabbing his estranged girlfriend outside a local church.

Aslin Nabarro, 41, pleaded no contest to attempted first-degree murder and was sentenced in a Grand Island courtroom on Thursday. He said in court that he regretted his actions.

In May, Nabarro was accused of stabbing Mirna Medina-Colocho in the parking lot outside Saint Mary's Cathedral.

Officials say Nabarro and Medina-Colocho got into an argument which led to a violent attack. They say Nabarro stabbed Medina-Colocho up to 20 times in the upper torso and head.

Nabarro then cut his own throat and fled, but collapsed less than a block away.
