LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A man who stabbed another man in a hotel lobby in October 2017 has been sentenced to 50 years in prison.

The jury found 55-year-old Bobby Cisneros guilty of aggravated robbery after 59-year-old David Mikeal was found with multiple stab wounds at the La Quinta Inn on Avenue Q.

According to the police report, Cisneros walked into the hotel and asked for a cup of coffee. The report said he noticed Michael sitting in the lobby area watching television and walked over and asked him for money. When Michael told him no, Cisneros walked off into the hotel, then came straight back to Michael and began stabbing him in the back of the neck.

Police say there was a scuffle and Michael was stabbed multiple times. The report says Cisneros kept asking for Mikeal's wallet but kept stabbing him.

The victim had several cuts around his body and was hospitalized.

The grand jury indictment says Cisneros committed the felony offense of forgery in 1987 and the felony of injury to the elderly in 1989. He was convicted in both cases.

Court documents say Cisneros admitted to using narcotics on the day of and prior to the day of the assault. The documents say Cisneros told investigators "the night before me and (another person) were high... and I had the energizer bunny." He also told investigators, "everybody's on ice, everybody's tweaking, even myself - it makes me delusional and wicked and has me thinking a lot of stuff that's not true and it's just the dope." He also told investigators, "I left, came back in and executed" and "Have you ever heard that song 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia'? That's what I did." He also told them "I'm going to show them who's bad, I'm going to do the devil's work."
