The man suspected in the CU-Boulder stabbing case earlier this week has been sent to Pueblo.

Kenton Astin is now at the Colorado State Mental Health Institute. He's accused of slitting the throat of a college freshman on the first day of class.

Astin has a criminal history that includes a 2001 knife attack, and this isn't his first trip to the mental hospital in Pueblo.

The victim, 17-year-old George Knorps, has been released from the hospital and is recovering.
