Brooklyn man gets 2 years prison for attack on wife



A Brooklyn man who chopped up his ex-wife's face was sentenced to two years in prison yesterday.

Yousheng Huang had been convicted of second-degree assault for stabbing his former wife, Shao Ling Ye, with a meat cleaver in July 2009. Ye suffered a fractured skull and gashes that required 30 stitches, reports said.

The couple divorced three weeks before the attack and were still sharing a Sunset Park apartment.

Haung's defense attorney said Huang lost control after years of verbal abuse from Ye, according to the New York Post.
