Stabbing suspect gets life

On February 3, 2011

Lawrence James, who plead guilty to fatally stabbing University of Toledo sophomore Casey Bucher, has been sentenced to life in prison.

James, 24, said in a pre-trial hearing last week he had dreams compelling him to stab Bucher.

James will be eligible for parole after 16 years.

Bucher was 22 years old at the time of the July incident when he was stabbed once in the heart after being asked for cigarettes and change outside of Maxwell’s Brew on West Bancroft.

James had been released from a two-year prison sentence for a similar stabbing incident in 2008 just two months before he stabbed Bucher.
