ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) - A 27-year-old man has been sentenced to 40 to 80 years in prison in the stabbing death of a co-worker.

The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner reports (https://bit.ly/2p0nPga ) that Charles Kenzell Carter pleaded no contest on Tuesday to second-degree murder under a plea agreement.

Carter was originally charged with first-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Toboris Lee last May at a Rock Springs convenience store.

Investigators said Carter stabbed Lee multiple times during a fight over money. The two had been working together as traveling salesmen.

During sentencing, District Court Judge Nena James gave Carter 337 days credit for time already served.
