CHESTER, S.C. — A Chester man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for stabbing his girlfriend and killing her unborn child.
The Herald of Rock Hill reports that 40-year-old Aris Nichols was sentenced Wednesday after pleading no contest to attempted murder and death or injury to a child in utero.
Police say 23-year-old Brittany Jordan was several months pregnant when she was stabbed several times in April 2012 in the couple’s home just west of Chester.
Their unborn son did not survive, and Jordan was hospitalized for weeks.
Nichols had been set to go on trial Monday. He said in court that he doesn’t remember anything about the stabbing.
