A Pennsauken man has been sentenced to 15 years in New Jersey state prison for trying to stab another Pennsauken man to death in 2019.

Forty-four-year-old Zachary Mai was convicted of first-degree attempted murder, third-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and fourth-degree unlawful possession of a weapon on January 24, 2023.

According to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, Mai was arrested in connection with a December 4, 2019 incident in which “detectives determined that Mai attacked the victim from behind, cutting the victim’s throat, and stabbing him several times in the chest.”

The victim was transported to Cooper University Hospital in critical, unstable condition, but survived the attack.

On April 18, 2023, Mai was sentenced to 15 years in prison under the No Early Release Act, under which he must serve no fewer than 12 years and eight months before he is parole-eligible.

Mai will also serve concurrent sentences of three years and 18 months, respectively, for the third- and fourth-degree weapons charges.
