MONTROSE, Pa. (AP) - A northeastern Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to 18 to 40 years in prison in the death of a man stabbed 29 times and then dumped down an embankment along the Susquehanna River.

The (Scranton) Times-Tribune (https://bit.ly/2hxsL5D ) reports that 26-year-old Jerry Mast was sentenced Wednesday in Susquehanna County in the February 2015 death of Roy Marvin.

Last week, co-defendant Sarah Briggs was sentenced to life on a first-degree murder conviction. Mast pleaded guilty in December 2015 to third-degree murder and robbery.

Mast said in court that he was there “to show the family I feel bad.” He said “I can’t bring him back. I can’t set it right.”

Susquehanna County Senior Judge Kenneth Seamans called the case one of the “more horrendous, more brutal” to come to his court.
