The sentence was imposed during Catawba County Superior Court on Tuesday (June 25). The Honorable Nathaniel J.

The assault occurred on the evening of May 4 and early-morning hours of May 5, 2019. At some point during that period, Hendricks used a blade about 18 inches in length to slice the neck of the 30-year-old victim, leaving one laceration of more than 2 inches in length and another of more than 3 inches.
