Guilty plea entered in stabbing

A man on parole for a 1970 murder was sentenced last week to two years’ jail time for stabbing another resident of the trailer park he lived in.

The incident happened Aug. 21 at a trailer park in the 2300 block of Arbot Road in the Westwood Lake area.

Teddy Antoine and the manager of the trailer park got into an argument and Antoine stabbed the manager numerous times, said Crown counsel Ron Parsons.

The injuries were non-life-threatening and the victim had to have surgery on his hand, he added.

Antoine pleaded guilty in Nanaimo provincial court on Sept. 4 to one count of aggravated assault and was given the two-year sentence.

Parsons said Antoine’s lifetime parole for the 1970 murder was revoked and he will serve his time for the assault concurrently with the life sentence.
