Man who attacked his 69-year-old father with a knife sentenced to life

A Jacksonville man was sentenced to life Tuesday after attacked his father with a knife and stealing his car in 2015, the state attorney's office reports.

Mark Anthony Daly, 44, broke into his father's home in July of 2015, attacked the 69-year-old man, stole his car and then was involved in a hit-and-run. Police eventually caught Daly.

He's been sentenced to life in prison as a reoffender after being convicted of burglary with assault or battery and received an additional five years for battery on a person 65 years of age or older and leaving the scene of a crash involving injury.

Those sentences will run at the same time.
