Knife attacker gets year in jail

A Mission Hill woman will be jailed for one year for slashing a neighbor with a kitchen knife in a dispute over a parking space.

Carmen Andino, 40, was sentenced last month to two-and-a-half years in a house of corrections by a Suffolk County Superior Court judge for the 2010 assault on McGreevey Way. The judge ordered Andino to serve one year behind bars, with the remainder of the sentence suspended, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office. If Andino commits another crime within two years, she would be ordered back to the house of corrections to serve the rest of the sentence.

Andino and the victim fought about access to an on-street parking space after the victim shoveled snow out of it. During the fight, Andino slashed the victim’s face and underarm, causing serious injuries. On May 4, Andino was convicted of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
