A Superior Court judge in Camden sentenced Christopher Kornberger to 18 years in prison yesterday for attacking a Waterford Township woman with a tire iron and attempting to sexually assault her.

Kornberger, 22, of Marlton, also faces murder and attempted murder charges in Burlington County for attacks on two other women. His trial is set for later this year.

A jury in Camden County convicted Kornberger on the charges there in little more than an hour in January.

He has been accused of going on a rampage of attacking women between February and November 2003. He is accused of stabbing to death Krista DiFrancesco, a young mother found dead outside her Evesham home. Kornberger could face the death penalty if convicted in the DiFrancesco killing.- Troy Graham
