WHEELING, W.Va. --

An Ohio County man has been sentenced to prison for stabbing and wounding another man on Wheeling Island.

Robert Lawson was found guilty on Thursday of malicious assault.

The verdict stems from an incident in April during which Lawson got in a fight with another man on Iowa Street.

Police say the two were at a bar before the assault. When the other man left the bar, Lawson pursued and stabbed him.

Lawson could serve anywhere from one to five years in a state penitentiary. He is expected to be sentenced in the coming weeks.
