WICHITA, Kan. – A Wichita man who stabbed a woman about 30 times in a random attack last year was sentenced Wednesday to just over 24 years in prison.

Wade Dunn was convicted in April of attempted second-degree murder and aggravated battery for the Sept. 23, 2019.

Prosecutors said Dunn approached the 28-year-old woman after she loaded laundry into her car and stabbed her about 30 times without saying anything. The woman’s 15-month-old child was alone inside the house.

The woman survived and her baby was not injured. After the woman said “I am a mother, please don’t do this, please stop,” Dunn ran away.

During the trial, Dunn said he was high on drugs at the time of the attack.

Prosecutors said Dunn escaped from the Mirror Residential Reentry Center hours before the attack.
