A Spring Valley Man Was Sentenced To 18 Years In Prison For Attempted Second Degree Murder In Cordes Lakes

A Spring Valley man will spend 18 years in prison after he was found guilty of attempted second-degree murder, burglary and two counts of aggravated assault in 2021. Back on February 20th, a Yavapai County judge sentenced 35-year-old James Robert Patton in connection with the stabbing of 45-year-old Kenneth Wallace, multiple times, with a serious laceration to his neck. Wallace was airlifted to a Phoenix area hospital and survived the attack. Wallace’s family told investigators he was in a disagreement about money with a family acquaintance. Patton was found in an area known as “The Outback” near the Agua Fria River in Cordes Lakes. He surrendered to a deputy who was sitting in a police vehicle near the area. Patton told the deputy he knew the helicopter was going to find him anyway.
