A man who stabbed his girlfriend at an east side home was sentenced in Dane County court Monday.

Eric Prunn was sentenced to 24 years in prison and 20 years of extended supervision for the stabbing.

He pleaded guilty to first-degree attempted intentional homicide in March after being arrested in September.

Police said they found Semilla Anderson with multiple stab wounds to her upper body inside a Brigham Avenue residence. Anderson was Prunn’s live-in girlfriend at the time of the attack.

Anderson testified Monday, and asked the court to sentence Prunn to 30 years in prison. She also said Prunn continues to write her letters blaming her for the incident.

“In Eric’s world he was reasonable. Maybe he overreacted, but I am so terrible and such an awful person that it was OK for him to pick one of the knives out of my kitchen, carry it down the hallway into my bedroom and stab me 29 while I cried and begged,” Anderson said.

She said the incident started with an argument that night because he accused her of having an affair a year prior.
