BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) - An eastern Nebraska man has been sentenced again for the stabbing death of his roommate.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1jzAQ69 ) 48-year-old Darrell White, of Bellevue, was sentenced Thursday to 18 to 20 years in prison for the September 2010 death of Todd Berg.

White had previously been convicted of second-degree murder in the case and was sentenced to 40 to 60 years in prison. The Nebraska Supreme Court ordered a new trial last year due to faulty jury instruction. White pleaded guilty in January to manslaughter.

Assistant Public Defender Chris Lathrop says White acted in self-defense during an argument between the temporary roommates, but prosecutor Jennifer Miralles says evidence suggests that wasn’t the case.

The newspaper reports White will get credit for time he’s already served.
