VINELAND MAN SENTENCED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER

A Vineland man will be serving the next 20 years of his life behind bars for trying to kill a man in the head and face with a machete.  44 year old Eugenio Morales pleaded guilty in May to charges relating to the incident that occurred nearly two years ago.  Morales then attempted to attach two Buena police officers with a box cutter and was shot in self defense.
