CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) — A 20-year-old southwest Idaho man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for his part in a fatal stabbing.
KTVB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1JenFq6) that Jacob Hernandez received the sentence Tuesday in 3rd District Court and must serve 13 years before becoming eligible for parole.
Hernandez was found guilty in October of aiding and abetting voluntary manslaughter, two counts of aggravated battery and two counts of kidnapping.
Hernandez's co-defendant, 21-year-old Edgar Covarrubias, previously pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the December 2014 stabbing death of 20-year-old Ricardo Sedano.
Covarrubias in November received a 15 year sentence.
Prosecutors on Tuesday cited Hernandez's gang affiliation in arguing for a lengthy sentence.
