A woman who stabbed a man in the neck after she found out he was dating someone else was sentenced Wednesday to nearly 12 years in state prison.

Joann Carter, 52, previously pleaded guilty to assault with a deadly weapon for the Aug. 29 attack on Alejandro Gomez, also 52, who was stabbed near El Cajon Boulevard and Euclid Avenue in the Colina del Sol neighborhood.

Carter charged at Gomez, yelling “I’m gonna kill you,” before stabbing him in the trachea, prosecutor Matthew Dix said at the defendant’s arraignment.

Gomez survived the life-threatening injury, for which he underwent surgery.
