Stabbing suspect receives six to 20 years

TRAVERSE CITY — A Traverse City man will spend at least six years in prison for his role in an attempted robbery and stabbing on Northwestern Michigan College’s campus, a judge ruled.

Antonio Fabio Orozco, 18, pleaded guilty to assault with intent to do bodily harm and assault with intent to rob while armed in April.

He appeared before 13th Circuit Court Judge Philip Rodgers on Friday and received a six- to 20-year sentence.

Orozco and his co-defendants — Jorge-Antonio Lopez Alvarado, 21, and Jorge Alberto Vasquez-Antonio, 16 — are accused of attacking an Indiana man, Dwight Johnathan Thompson, 36, on Jan. 31 in an attempt to steal drugs.

Alvarado pleaded guilty to unarmed robbery and assault with intent to rob while armed. He’s scheduled for sentencing on May 30.

Vasquez-Antonio is scheduled for trial on June 18.

Alyssa Ann Rodriquez, 18, a woman accused of conspiring to help the three men, pleaded guilty to accessory after the fact to a felony. She’s scheduled for a sentencing hearing on May 16.

Another woman accused of helping the suspects — Ashley Ann Day, 21 — is scheduled for a plea hearing on May 9.
