RELATED: Man indicted in Troy hotel stabbings
They were taken to Miami Valley Hospital by CareFlight and treated for serious injuries.
The case was one of the worst he’s seen in his years with the prosecutor’s office, said Paul Watkins, assistant prosecutor. He said Boyea stabbed the man 22 times and the woman six times, one close to her heart. Without the quick response by Troy paramedics and police, “I’m not sure either would be here today,” Watkins said.
Judge Jeannine Pratt said Boyea showed no remorse and caused serious harm to both victims.
She said Boyea’s decision to take out his frustration after being “jilted” by the girlfriend was both disturbing and perverse.
Troy police said all three worked at the Troy Burger King and that the woman had ended a relationship with Boyea.
He received credit for 239 days served and was ordered to pay court costs.
