South Bend man gets 50 years in prison after double stabbing

A man accused of stabbing an ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend is going to prison for a while.

33-year-old Marvin Hill was sentenced to 50 years in prison Thursday in St. Joseph County Superior Court. He was sentenced on a total of four charges, including a 30 year sentence for Attempted Murder. All of the sentences will have to be run consecutively except for a 5-year sentence for Battery.

A count of Attempted Murder and a count of Rape were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

South Bend Police were sent to Laurel Woods Apartments, on Laurelwood Court near Auten Road, around 12:40 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 19 on a domestic disturbance call.

One female was found in the apartment suffering from apparent stab wounds. A second male victim was found in a second apartment within the complex and also appeared to be suffering from apparent stab wounds, according to the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office.

Both individuals were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Marvin Hill, 32, was taken into custody in connection with the incident and booked into the St. Joseph County Jail on preliminary charges of aggravated battery, rape, criminal confinement, and domestic battery in the presence of a child, according to the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office.

The initial investigation indicates that the alleged suspect knew the victims. The South Bend Tribune later confirmed the victims were an ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend.
