MARION, Ill. (AP) - A southern Illinois man has been sentenced to four years in prison for a fight last year that killed another man.

Danny Dunn of Creal Springs was sentenced on Friday in Williamson County. He was convicted last month of involuntary manslaughter in the death of 22-year-old Trevor Martin.

Authorities accused the 38-year-old Dunn of punching Martin last June, causing him to fall and hit his head on concrete. Martin died days later at a hospital.

Dunn’s attorneys had insisted Martin’s death was an accident, claiming Dunn believed he was stopping a fight between Martin and another man.
