A Sedgwick County jury on Friday delivered a guilty verdict against a Wichita man charged with attempted first-degree murder in a knife attack on an 18-year-old in 2013, the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.
Prosecutors say Matthew Wimberly attacked and stabbed Andrew Langston twice at Wimberly’s Wichita home in the 3300 block of East Victor on September 22, 2013. Langston suffered knife wounds to his neck and head; emergency crews that responded to the scene found the blade lodged in Langston’s skull, the district attorney’s office said.
The jury convicted Wimberly, 37, on Friday morning. District Judge Jeffrey Goering presided over the case.
Wimberly’s sentencing date has not yet been set, the district attorney’s office said.
