NJ Man Gets 15 Years For Stabbing Ex-Boyfriend’s Brother

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors say a northern New Jersey man who fled the state last year after admitting that he tried to kill his ex-boyfriend’s brother has been sentenced to 15 years in state prison.

Paul Kramer of Mahwah, who had pleaded guilty to attempted murder, was awaiting sentencing when he cut off a monitoring bracelet on his ankle and fled in his mother’s car. He remained a fugitive for two months until he was captured at a Missouri bus station.

Kramer’s lawyer says his client “snapped” when his ex-boyfriend called Kramer’s mother and told her he was gay. The two men were going through an acrimonious split.

Later that day, Kramer repeatedly slashed and stabbed the victim until his knife broke. He has since recovered, but says the attack left him traumatized.

    Men who are interested in other mens rectums are sick and must be jailed or executed like they do in China.Mayor Bloomberg supports this behavior in NYC but there are laws the NYPD should enforce regarding sodomy.It must be stopped

    Why would anyone let him out of jail after he plead guilty to attempted murder,then be surprised he cut off his bracelet and fled? His bail should have been revoked immediately upon his plea…………………

    What a horrible way to be outed. I don’t care how angry I’ve been with a girlfriend. I’d never even think of calling her mother or father and telling then anything about her.

    Hell hath no fury like a gay man scorned

    What a homophobic troll.

  • James

    You don’t go outing someone like that. I don’t agree with the stabbing but outing him to his mother wasn’t clearly something to do when you get angry.

    I thought only straight people are in abusive relationships??? Not
