A Walthill, Nebraska man has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for stabbing his adult son with a kitchen knife.
60 year old Mark Phillips was sentenced to 33 months in prison after being found guilty of assault with a dangerous weapon.
Federal prosecutors say Phillips stabbed his adult son in the chest on Sept. 21, 2012, in the family home in Walthill.
His son was treated for the wound and released.
The federal government had jurisdiction because the crime was within the Omaha Indian Reservation.
