  • A Walker man has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for a fatal stabbing in northern Minnesota.
    Cass County Attorney Christopher Strandlie says 21-year-old Sheldon James Smith was sentenced Monday.
    Smith had earlier pleaded guilty to second-degree intentional murder for the March 21 killing of 22-year-old Jason Dale Howard.
    An investigation found two groups had been getting into physical and verbal confrontations in the days before the stabbing. Smith stabbed Howard during a fight between the two groups.
    Howard was airlifted to a Brainerd hospital, where he died.
