LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - The admitted killer of a man found slain in the lobby of a central Pennsylvania motel has been ordered to serve 12-1/2 to 25 years on prison for the crime.

LancasterOnline (https://bit.ly/PQuhkh) reported that 21-year-old George Dower-Hinton apologized for his actions before his sentencing Wednesday for the December 2012 stabbing death of 24-year-old Jeffrey Brent.

He said Brent’s death “is going to be a burden on my heart forever.”

Last year, Dower-Hinton pleaded guilty to third-degree murder.

Prosecutors said Dower-Hinton, who was 19 at the time of the killing, stabbed Brent after a party outside the Budget Host Inn in Lancaster.

Brent staggered into the lobby of the adjacent Wingate by Wyndham Hotel, where he collapsed and died.
