Man sentenced to prison for stabbing Sharon woman

MERCER, Pa. - A man convicted of murdering a Sharon woman is going to prison for 20 to 40 years.

That was the sentence handed down this morning to 21-year-old Anthony Argenziano.

He pleaded guilty earlier to third degree murder in connection with last year's stabbing death of 42-year-old Tracy Goga.

U.S. Marshals arrested Argenziano as he was attempting to board a bus in Youngstown shortly after Goga's father discovered her body in her State Street apartment.

Goga had been stabbed thirty times.

Argenziano's attorney asked the judge for the minimum sentence of 12.5 years claiming that Argenziano was under the influence of drugs the day he stabbed Goga.

Judge Thomas Dobson did not agree and said you don't get a second chance in murder trials because something was taken from the Goga family that cannot be replaced.

"The sentence will take most of his life and that's appropriate," Judge Dobson said in court.
