VanDoren

A Bristol man who repeatedly stabbed his estranged wife during a brutal attack in August was sentenced Thursday to 22 to 46 years in state prison. 

Walter Joseph Vandoren Jr., 44, of Bristol Township, had pleaded guilty in May to attempted homicide, burglary, criminal trespass, simple assault, possession of an instrument of crime, terroristic threats, and criminal mischief. 

On Thursday, July 22, 2021, Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey L. Finley reprimanded Vandoren for trying to take his children’s mother away from them in front of them before sending him to state prison for 22 to 46 years. 

Judge Finley told the defendant, "If you wanted to commit suicide by cop, that’s fine," adding that it was an evil act to try to take another person's life with him.
