A 45-year-old Burlington County man was sentenced Friday to 47 years in state prison for the 2017 fatal stabbing of his ex-girlfriend and her sister, and the wounding of a third woman inside one of the victim’s home in Collingswood, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office said.
Mark Lyczak, of Burlington Township, had pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Colleen Brownell and Alysia McCloskey, who were sisters. Lyczak also pleaded guilty to aggravated assault for stabbing a 43-year-old woman who was his girlfriend at the time.
Prosecutors said Lyczak on Dec. 30, 2017, went to McCloskey’s home in Collingswood looking for Brownell and during an altercation that ensued stabbed all three women. The name of the surviving woman was not released.
Lyczak was arrested at the scene. He was sentenced Friday by Superior Court Judge Thomas Shusted.
