MANCHESTER (KWWL) -

A man who cut out his father's pacemaker from his chest will spend 20 years in prison for the attack.

Jesse Fierstine from Manchester was sentenced Monday.

He entered guilty pleas to willful injury, going armed with intent, and two counts of assault without intent causing serious injury, each carries five years of prison.

Fierstine's 63-year-old father, Charles, recovered from the 2009 attack in Delaware County but died last year from illness.
