Attacker in college stabbings gets 48 years in prison.

HOUSTON (AP) -- A student blamed for a 2013 stabbing rampage at a Houston-area community college must serve 48 years in prison.

Dylan Andrew Quick was sentenced by a judge in Houston.

Quick pleaded guilty in August to attempted capital murder and aggravated assault in the April 2013 stabbings at the Lone Star College-Cy Fair campus that left 14 people hurt.

Records show the 23-year-old Quick was born deaf and his attorneys argued that caused problems with him developing social skills. The defense sought probation.

Court documents indicate Quick told investigators that he fantasized about cannibalism, necrophilia and cutting off people's faces and wearing them as masks. Quick also told authorities that he went online and researched mass stabbings a week before the attack.
