WASHINGTON — A D.C. man who stabbed a transgender woman 40 times last summer after an argument about sex was sentenced to 10 years in prison Friday.
Michael McBride, 23, had previously pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in connection with the June 21, 2013 attack on Bree Wallace, a 29-year-old transgender woman.
Prosecutors say that the suspect and victim got into a verbal argument about sex that escalated into a physical altercation.
During the fight, McBride stabbed Wallace more than three dozen times.
After his prison term, McBride will also serve five years of supervised release and receive mental health services.
