Waukegan Man Gets Prison for 2018 Attack on Woman

(Waukegan, IL)  A Waukegan man convicted of attacking a woman because she would not get romantically involved with him, is on his way to prison. Varghese Philip was accused of brutally attacking the woman back in June of 2018, leaving her with a brain injury that still affects her. The 54-year-old was convicted last October on two counts of attempted murder as well as aggravated battery. During sentencing on Tuesday, the judge in the case said the attack was cold blooded in nature. He then slapped Philip with a 16-year prison term.
