A Montgomery County judge sentenced a Germantown man to 40 years in prison Thursday for nearly killing a man and then leading police on a chase in a stolen car.

Last summer, a jury found 27-year-old Da’von Mobley guilty of four felonies, including attempted second-degree murder.

The case stemmed from what happened the night of October 23, 2016, in a Germantown neighborhood just south of Northwest High School.

Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office spokesman Ramon Korionoff said victim Agyeman Kuffour and Mobley got into an argument in an apartment at 13308 Kilmarnock Way.

During the argument, Korionoff said Mobley spit on the victim’s mother, Janet Kuffour, leading to a fight. Although smaller in size, the victim got the better of Mobley in that fight.

Mobley later came back with a knife, broke in, and began stabbing both mother and son.

Mobley stabbed Agyeman Kuffour multiple times in the head and neck. Janet Kuffour was also stabbed but was not hurt nearly as bad.

Mobley then jumped off the apartment’s second-floor balcony, then went nearby and stole a car. The car was spotted after police arrived.

Police chased Mobley. After driving into the backyard of a home on a cul-de-sac on Cricket Hill Drive, Mobley got out of the car and ran. He was eventually cornered by police and arrested.

On Thursday, Judge David Boynton sentenced Mobley to 25 years for second-degree murder, and five years each for second-degree assault, first-degree burglary, and auto theft.

“This is a very satisfying sentence,” Korionoff said Thursday. “Justice was served.”

Korionoff said Agyeman Kuffour was clinically dead at one point but survived. He was in a coma for two weeks and his recovery has taken a long time.
