EASTON, Pa. — A man convicted in a home invasion robbery during which an alleged accomplice’s hand was severed has been sentenced to eight to 16 years in prison.
A Northampton County judge on Friday imposed the eight-year minimum term that prosecutors had agreed to recommend when 44-year-old Ronald Mumbauer Jr. pleaded guilty in June to aggravated assault and burglary.
Authorities alleged he was one of three men involved in the July home invasion in Northampton during which the resident said he defended himself with a machete after finding masked men in his basement
Fifty-five-year-old William Andrews Jr., whose severed hand was later reattached, was sentenced to 13 to 30 years on aggravated assault, burglary and related convictions. A third defendant pleaded guilty to reckless endangering and is awaiting sentencing.
