Teen sentenced in fatal 2014 Wichita stabbing

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A teenager who pleaded guilty in the fatal Christmas Eve 2014 stabbing of a Wichita man has been sentenced to five years in a juvenile correctional facility.

The Wichita Eagle reported Monday that the male teenager was sentenced Friday. He pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter last year in connection with the death of 32-year-old Steven D. Manuel.

Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Dan Dillon said that the teen, who was 16 at the time of the stabbing, will be subject to two years of “aftercare” once he is released.

Manuel died early Christmas Day after he was stabbed several times during a fight at his home on Dec. 24, 2014.
