JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Jacksonville man has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for fatally stabbing his neighbor.

The Florida Times-Union (https://goo.gl/O5nnPf) reports that 48-year-old Travis Devon Watkins was sentenced Friday. He pleaded guilty in October to second-degree murder.

Authorities say Watkins was at the home of 28-year-old Jeremiah Luke Brooks in 2012 when the two men got into an argument. Watkins grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed Brooks.
