Defiant woman gets maximum sentence in Niagara Falls stabbing

Cheyenne N. Buck, who rushed into a Niagara Falls street fight April 14 to punch and stab a woman, was sentenced Thursday to 1 1/3 to four years in prison.

It was the most Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III could have given Buck, 22, of Seventh Street for her plea to attempted second-degree assault.

Buck told a probation officer in a presentencing interview that she didn't intend to stop using drugs, that she always carries a pocket knife and has a "favorite weapon," a lock on a chain around her neck.

"It sounds to me like you have no intention of reforming your criminal ways," Murphy said.

Angel M. Meyers, 22, of Linwood Avenue, is awaiting sentencing for holding onto the victim, Olivia Brown, as Buck attacked her.
