Five Year Sentence In Stabbing Case

Five Year Sentence In Stabbing Case

A 23-year-old man has been sentenced to five years in prison for stabbing the son of Syracuse's police chief.

Demetrius Archie of Syracuse was sentenced in Onondaga County Court this morning.

He pleaded guilty to an assault charge on April 16 after admitting to stabbing 21-year-old Frank Fowler Jr. early on the morning of Jan. 6 inside a convenience store.

A co-defendant, 24-year-old Antwann Underwood, pleaded guilty to assault earlier this year and was sentenced to two years in prison.

According to police, Underwood held Fowler while Archie stabbed him five times in the chest and buttocks. Fowler was treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

No motive for the attack was given.

Fowler's father, Frank Fowler, has been Syracuse police chief since early 2010.
