A man has been jailed for 14 years after repeatedly stabbing his neighbour and leaving him in a coma.
Anthony Chilton, 47, stabbed the unnamed victim, a man in his 30s, three times on his own doorstep in Blythe Road, Coventry, on 4 March.
He left the man in a coma for a week after damaging his heart and lung.
The victim has since recovered from his injuries.
Chilton knifed his neighbour following a disagreement and was arrested soon after.
He denied being the attacker but was successfully prosecuted after witnesses came forward and gave statements.
Chilton was convicted of wounding with intent and sentenced at Warwick Crown Court on 13 August.
DC Keith Clarkson, from force CID at Coventry, said: "A knife can ruin lives, they can cause not only physical but emotional pain.
"The victim suffered serious injuries and it’s just fortunate it wasn’t even worse. The witness accounts were instrumental in securing the conviction.
"This sentence should act as a strong warning that knife crime is unacceptable and won’t be tolerated."
