(KSL News Services) -- The Sandy man who was stabbed on his wedding day inflicted the wounds himself.

Kent Sadler was found by relatives Saturday evening after he was late for his wedding. He had six stab wounds in the neck and chest areas.

He told police he had been attacked, but the investigators said there were discrepancies in his story. Yesterday police say Sadler asked to speak with investigators and confessed.

Sgt. Michelle Burnette, Sandy City Police Dept.: "Just saying that there were a lot of things going on in his life and it just came to a breaking point on that afternoon."

Kent Sadler is still in the hospital in stable condition. He faces charges of making a false police report. That is a misdemeanor, with a penalty of up to a year in jail and a fine.
