FAIRBANKS — A Fairbanks man convicted of assault for his role in a knife fight two years ago in the Aurora subdivision was re-sentenced to serve his full jail term after he violated his probation by smothering his girlfriend, according to court documents.

Brian James Leo Linus, 21, was given a two-year sentence with all but six months suspended in 2010. In that case, he pleaded guilty to pulling a knife on a man he did not know who was trying to stop him from breaking into a vehicle. The man successfully stopped him and Linus was the only one hurt in the incident.

A new misdemeanor charge was filed against him in April after his girlfriend said he covered her mouth and nose with his hand during an argument when she would not answer a question.

Linus must now serve 17 months from the knife assault conviction and an additional month for the domestic violence conviction, according to court log notes of a hearing last week.
