Posted: Tuesday, June 30, 2009

ANCHORAGE - A 49-year-old Anchorage man will serve 21 years in prison for stabbing a fellow tenant at an Anchorage rooming house.

Rickey Sizemore was convicted by an Anchorage jury in January of two counts of assault for the July 2007 incident. Prosecutors said he stabbed a man in the neck with a knife while the man watched television in the rooming house.

Trial prosecutor John Skidmore says Sizemore has a long criminal history with prior convictions on assault, burglary and other crimes in Florida and North Carolina.
