BOISE, Idaho — Cory Baker plead guilty to participating in the beating and stabbing of a 20-year-old woman in the Boise foothills earlier this year, and now he will spend up to 15 years in prison.

District Judge Deborah Bail sentenced the 30-year-old Monday. She gave him seven years fixed, and eight years indeterminate. Baker is the first of four people to be sentenced in connection with the stabbing.

Cody C. Baker, 30; Justice M. Bowie, 20; Kevin M. Ivey, 29; and Brianna Brown, 21, are all charged with aggravated battery in connection with the case.

Ada County deputies were first called to a home on the 1600 block of Braemere Road on March 19, 2019. The victim in the case told the people who lived there she had just been attacked up the 8th Street extension (Sunset Peak Road), but was able to walk down the road to get help, according to a press release.

Authorities say the victim had multiple visible injuries and told police three men and the woman beat her, stabbed her with a knife and a broken bottle, and then left her on the side of Sunset Peak Road while they drove away. Boise Police and Ada County paramedics responded immediately. Paramedics took the victim to a local hospital for treatment of potentially life-threatening injuries.

The victim survived.
