The 19-year old Sodus man charged last November with second-degree murder in connection with the stabbing death of his 17 year old ex-girlfriend pleaded guilty in Wayne County Court this morning.
David Knight-Hollis was immediately sentenced to a prison term of 20 years to life.
Knight-Hollis called the Wayne County 9-1-1 center saying he had killed Alyssa Taft last Novmeber. Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts says Knight-Hollis lured Taft to his home by promising to pay her back money he owed her with the intention of trying to rekindle their relationship. When she refused, Knight-Hollis stabbed Taft in the ribs and slit her throat.
