    Thursday Nov 1 | via San Mateo Daily Journal 

    A terminal cancer patient who reportedly set a fire in his county hospital room and threatened a nurse with a knife before a two-hour standoff with police is looking at up to three years in prison after pleading no contest to arson and assault. Zavtcho Stanonor Stoyanov, 52, will be sentenced Jan. 10 and, while he is reportedly dying of cancer, Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti said his punishment for the March 5 incident will be based on more than that single factor although it is a consideration.
