Man sentenced in love triangle stabbing

A man who stabbed his lover's estranged husband was released from jail after pleading guilty to a felony assault charge.

Dumont P. Whitt, 35, was sentenced to 2.25 months in jail Thursday in Spokane County Superior Court but credited for time already served and good behavior in jail.

He pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree assault for a stabbing Dec. 28 at a home at 2415 E. 1st Ave.

Spokane police initially believed Whitt may have stabbed Robert D. McQueen in self defense after McQueen confronted Whitt  and McQueen's wife, Alicia McQueen, but Whitt was arrested about a week after the incident.

McQueen was hospitalized with critical injuries from several stab wounds but has since improved and was arrested on a trespassing charge.
