A man has been sentenced in the 2017 stabbing of a mother and daughter at a Phoenix apartment complex.
Ulrick Bryan Woody was sentenced last week after pleading ‘no contest’ to two counts of attempted second-degree murder and aggravated assault. Woody was sentenced to 12 years in prison and at least five years of probation.
On October 26, 2017, Phoenix Police responded to a call of a double stabbing at an apartment complex near 43rd Avenue and Indian School Road. Witnesses identified Woody as the suspect who was once married to one of the victims.
Court records show that an intoxicated Woody began arguing with one of the women in the home about a cell phone.
He then stabbed both women “multiple times with various knives.”
One of the women escape but was chased down by Woody and stabbed her several more times.
In the parking lot of the apartment complex, police found a woman with three knives sticking out of her upper body.
The second victim escaped to a neighbor’s home but was also chased down by Woody, who forced his way inside and stabbed her again.
After extensive surgeries, both women survived the attacks.
Woody is scheduled for release from prison in October 2029.
