Man Sentenced to Life in Prison for Nurse Attack

The brutal and random attack involved a county psychiatric nurse

A man who viciously attacked a county nurse will spend life in prison, a judge ruled Friday.

Gregg Allen Taylor, 57, was convicted last month of premeditated attempted murder in the November 14 attack.

Taylor stabbed the victim, a county psychiatric nurse, as she arrived for work at the North Central Region Outpatient Clinic on Morena Boulevard. 

The victim said "Hi" to Taylor and then moments later she was stabbed 11 times in the chest, neck, and head. 

San Diego police arrested Taylor three blocks away.
