Wahpeton, ND (WDAY TV) - The Wahpeton man who's serving 15 years in prison for stabbing his neighbor says he wants the world to know "he's not a bad guy."

Patrick Wolfgram mailed a letter from jail to the Forum, saying since the victim in this case, 26 year-old Trista Martin spoke out it's only fair he does as well. In the letter, Wolfgram says he wanted her dead because she was an inconsiderate, noisy neighbor. He says it made him sleep deprived, and said at the time "I believed the world would be a better place without her in it."

Wolfgram says he knows now his actions were wrong, but felt a 15 year sentence was too harsh. Wolgram repeatedly stabbed Martin outside their apartment last October.
