On one side of the courtroom, David Buckley spoke in a soft voice about being left with “seven scars and one broken heart.”
Listening on the other side of the courtroom was his son, who had inflicted the damage.
Ethan Buckley was sentenced Tuesday in Warren Circuit Court to 10 years in prison, having pleaded guilty but mentally ill to a charge of first-degree assault.
The younger Buckley, 21, was arrested Aug. 14 at Hillvue Heights Church after multiple witnesses reported he had stabbed his father with a knife during a worship service.
