Ex-boyfriend sentenced for eye stabbing

A Temple Hills man was sentenced to 13 years in prison for repeatedly stabbing a man who was dating his ex-girlfriend.

Eugene Freeman, 30, picked up his two children at his ex-girlfriend's house on the 4500 block of South Capitol St. SE in May 2012, and ran into his girlfriend's new boyfriend, prosecutors said.

Freeman stabbed the man in the back in the presence of the children. He then stabbed the man four more times, including once in the eye. The victim lost his left eye in the attack.

Defense worker sentenced for obstructing probe

A 58-year-old Potomac man was sentenced for obstructing background investigations for a high-level security clearance.

From 2003 to 2011, Gurpreet Singh Kohli ran a business that sold U.S. defense electronics while he also held a full-time position with a weapons manufacturer based in Maryland, which required a security clearance.

In 2010, agents from the FBI interviewed Kohli for his son's applications for employment with the FBI. Kohli minimized his son's role with his company, his own contacts with foreign customers and falsely said his wife ran his company.

He also lied about the purpose of his travels overseas.

Kohli was sentenced to six months home detention with electronic monitoring and three years probation.

Teen shot in drive-by

A 16-year-old boy was shot in Southeast D.C., police said.

About 11:50 p.m. Sunday, the teen was walking on the 900 block of Valley Avenue SE when he was approached by two men in a red, two-door sedan. One of the men brandished a handgun and then fired at the victim, who was struck in the back and leg, said D.C. police.

The boy was taken to a hospital with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.
