CURRY COUNTY, N.M. (KFDA) -

A Clovis man has been sentenced to nearly 60 years in prison for stabbing a woman and stealing her car nearly a year ago.

Aaron Morrisette, 31, pleaded guilty to armed robbery, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon against a household member and three other charges on Monday, according to the Ninth Judicial District Attorney's Office.

The charges stem from an incident last June where he stabbed a female victim multiple times before stealing her vehicle and purse. 

He was arrested the following day after a standoff with the Clovis Police Department's SWAT team.
