CINCINNATI (AP) - A southwest Ohio man has been sentenced to 11 years in prison as part of a plea deal in the fatal stabbing of his stepson in December.

Fifty-year-old John Cainion was sentenced Wednesday in Cincinnati after pleading guilty to manslaughter in the slaying of his wife’s son, 26-year-old Cody Sullivan.

Prosecutors say Sullivan was stabbed in the back while arguing with Cainion over the theft of illegal drugs on Dec. 19.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (https://cin.ci/1hQJwqq ) reports that Cainion’s family said in court that he had become an irrational addict whose paranoia and anger led him to attack his stepson.

Cainion has a history of crimes in Ohio, Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
