    A Fall River, Massachusetts, man who attacked his pregnant girlfriend and a neighbor with a hammer last summer will serve at least 10 years behind bars for the crime. 

    Twenty-four-year-old Mario Ramos pleaded guilty to several charges stemming from the violent July 2015 assault on Tuesday in Fall River Superior Court. He was immediately sentenced to a term of 10 to 12 years in state prison. 

    Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn called the attack "another example of pure inhumane brutality." 

    On the night of the assault, police were called to a housing complex where Ramos attempted to strangle his girlfriend. She fled to a neighbor's home, where Ramos struck her numerous times with a hammer.
