    A Massachusetts man who authorities say tried to kill his sister and brother-in-law by cutting their throats has been sentenced to up to eight years in prison.

    The Recorder of Greenfield reports that 59-year-old Timothy Murphy, of Athol, was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to multiple charges including two counts of attempted murder.

    Prosecutors say Murphy went to Susan and William Page's home in June 2018 and used a knife to cut them across the throat. A prosecutor said it was a "miracle" they survived. Authorities say Murphy blamed them for the loss of power at his mother's home, where he had been living, when in fact he had failed to pay the utility bills.

    Murphy's attorney sought a shorter sentence, saying his client was remorseful.
