(Detroit, MI) -- Jonathan Elbers was sentenced this morning to seven-to-25-years in prison after being convicted of attacking his ex-girlfriend and trying to stuff her into a Christmas tree bag. At Elbers' sentencing, attorney Mark Haddad said, quote, "when young men become smitten with young women, they are sometimes prone to irrational and bizarre behavior. I think this case sums this up." Haddad said that Elbers is not a bad person. He had a broken heart.
