A Casper man has been sentenced for assaulting another man with a knife.

Kino Beman was sentenced to serve two-and-one-half to four years in prison after entering an alford plea to one count of aggravated assault.

Police say in May 2012,  Beman attacked Tyler Johnson when he found Johnson and a woman making out.

Beman admitted that at first he lied to police about the events of that night, then said he was trying to get the knife away from the female, and that she attacked Johnson.

An alford plea is not an admission of guilt, but acknowledges that there is enough evidence for a conviction.
