According to our partners at Oak Ridge Today, a man convicted earlier this year on charges that included attempted murder, was sentenced Monday in Anderson County Criminal Court to the maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
A jury needed only about an hour in July to convict now 51-year-old McKinley Earl McGee on charges of attempted second-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault resulting in serious injury in the January stabbing of Machel Avery.
Avery survived the stabbing, and McGee was apprehended a short distance away from where the incident occurred at a home on Utica Circle on January 12th, 2018.
Oak Ridge Today reports that McGee has filed a motion for a new trial in his case, and that a hearing on that motion is set for November.
