Former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner has been sentenced to eight years in prison for trying to kill his ex-girlfriend after breaking into her Southern California home.

He pleaded no contest to felony attempted murder and two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to a child. Browner is accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's home where he chased her and allegedly attempted to smother her in a carpet. He also pleaded no contest to two counts of willful child endangerment. In exchange, the remaining charges (robbery, burglary and false imprisonment) were dropped.

Browner was arrested within hours of the incident in La Verne, which is about 30 miles east of Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, a judge sentenced Browner to eight years in a state prison.
