A Casper man has been sentenced after admitting to his role in a stabbing.

Twenty-two year-old Brian Kountz was sentenced to eight-to-10 years in prison, after pleading guilty to one charge of aggravated burglary and one charge of aggravated assault and battery.

Investigators say in January 2012, Kountz and some friends broke into a house on 1600 block of Kingsbury Drive intending to steal a gun and other property.

During the middle of the heist, the homeowner returned and chased the suspects.

Kountz slipped on some ice and when he was caught by the owner.

Investigators say Kountz stabbed him in the leg and fled.

Officers later found out Kountz’s identity when one of his accomplices told them about the incident, while being investigated on another matter.

Kountz is already serving time in federal prison on an unrelated matter.

This new sentence will run concurrent with the other one
