SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Salt Lake City man who stabbed, robbed and left his mother to die last year has been sentenced to up to life in prison.
Before going to prison, 51-year-old Blaine Thomas Foster will go to the Utah State Hospital for treatment. He pleaded guilty and mentally ill to first-degree felony attempted murder.
Foster stabbed his 82-year-old mother Gloria Foster last August. He then took her car and fled to Nevada, where he was later arrested.
The judge also ordered Foster to pay nearly two-thousand dollars in restitution and more than two-hundred dollars in extradition costs.
