ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - A man has been convicted on charges in connection with the stabbing of two people on a Greyhound bus bound near Bent in 2012.

The Alamogordo News reports a jury in Otero County found Jason Jimenez guilty Friday of two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Prosecutors say in June 2012, Jimenez stabbed a man 13 times and another passenger after an altercation on a bus traveling on U.S. Highway 70 bound for Ruidoso.

Jimenez allegedly left the scene but later turned himself in to Tularosa police.
