MURRAY -- A Murray man who admitted to stabbing the brother of his ex-girlfriend will spend five years in prison.

Nazir Rahimi pleaded guilty to a charge of homicide by assault in connection with the April 2008 death of Farhad Ahmad Mullahkhel.

The two men had begun arguing when Mullahkhel came with his sister to Rahimi's to retrieve her cell phone, at which point Rahimi stabbed Mullahkhel.

Before sentencing yesterday Rahimi apologized, saying he never meant to kill anyone.
