33 year old Awet Gebreyesus admitted to stabbing his wife while turning over their son to her at the Wegmans in Black Rock last year.
After the exchange, Gebreyesus repeatedly stabbed the woman, puncturing her skull. He was stopped by several witnesses, who DA Frank Sedita credits for helping the victim survive.
Gebreyesus faces up to 25 years in jail at sentencing in May. He'll likely be deported after that sentence. He's a refugee from Eritrea.
