ALBANY, N.Y.—An Albany man was sentenced to 45 years to life
in State Prison on Friday.

Michael Anderson, 29, pleaded guilty to one count of Murder
in the second degree and two counts of Assault in the first degree, on February
3, 2014.

On November 26, 2012 Anderson intentionally caused the death
of Tonette Thomas, 20, by repeatedly stabbing her with a knife. Anderson also
stabbed two other victims with a knife inside the same residence.

“Albany County has a strong
network of support services for people experiencing these crimes. Mr. Anderson
will pay for his crimes for the rest of his life, but look at the expense; a beautiful
life of a young woman whose contributions to the world we were just beginning
to witness,” said District Attorney David Soares.
