TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A 39-year-old Topeka man has been sentenced to about 10 years in prison for a November 2011 home invasion in which he burned a woman with a heated knife blade.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/YcavQU ) that Monroe Lockhart III was sentenced Tuesday in Shawnee County court. He was convicted earlier of aggravated burglary, aggravated assault and aggravated battery.

Assistant district attorney Chris Biggs had asked that Lockhart receive a total sentence of 11 years, 6 months. Defense attorney Linda Eckelman sought concurrent sentences of about five years.

Lockhart will be credited for the 15 months he has served since he was arrested on Feb. 2, 2012.
