Stabbing Sleeping Girlfriend
According to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to a home in southwest Knoxville in response to a stabbing around 8:30 p.m. The victim, whose name has not yet been released, was apparently able to escape the crime scene to a separate house about two miles away before the 911 call was made.
Apparently, a third party had telephoned in the attack and explained to the sheriff’s deputies that the victim had moved away from the clutches of his assailant. From the second home, she was taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center. There, hospital staff determined that she had been stabbed 20 to 30 times.
The victim told authorities that she was sleeping in the basement of the first house when she woke up to find her boyfriend stabbing her. The implement allegedly used by Abidi has not yet been identified.
WATE, a local ABC affiliate, cited an arrest report claiming that the defendant and the victim were “dating” at the time of the attack.
If he is convicted of the charges, Abidi would likely face a sentence of several decades in prison. Typical sentences for attempted murder often exceed 20 years or more in Voluntary Status.
