MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Mason City man has been sentenced to up to 10 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter in the stabbing death of another man.
The Globe Gazette reports that 21-year-old Braedon Bowers was sentenced Friday in Cerro Gordo County District Court.
Bowers was found guilty in August of voluntary manslaughter. He had been charged with first-degree murder in the May 30, 2017, stabbing of 23-year-old Wraymond Todd in Mason City. Todd died five days later.
Bowers has maintained that he did not intend to kill Todd. His attorneys said Bowers was acting in self-defense.
