GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) - A man convicted of killing a Grants Pass bar patron he didn’t even know has told the victim’s family he didn’t know why he did it.

Britt Bones read a statement Monday in Josephine County Circuit Court saying he was deeply sorry, but had no memory of stabbing 25-year-old Mike McCoy last March in the Red Rock Lounge.

Bones was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to murder.

Bar bouncer Jason Griffith told The Grants Pass Daily Courier (https://bit.ly/14XlPGX) there were about 150 people in the bar when Bones suddenly turned and attacked McCoy, who was standing behind him.

Bones was arrested the next day at his home in Selma, where there was a large marijuana growing operation.
