Man Convicted of Attempted Homicide in Slashing

SCRANTON — A man charged with trying to kill the mother of his children was found guilty by a jury in Lackawanna County.

Police accused Timothy McGoff of trying to kill Leslie Bacinelli in January of 2015.

Investigators said McGoff tried to slash Bacinelli with a knife after smashing into the car she was in.

A jury found McGoff guilty on all charges Friday after a four-day trial. He was convicted on all 13 charges; the most serious include two counts of attempted murder.

He will be sentenced in a few months he could face more than 15 years in prison.

    Thank God for Justice served to this animal. He has no morals and deserves to rot in prison first, and then in hell!
