Davis accepts plea deal, sentenced in stabbing death

LAWTON, Okla._A man charged in a fatal stabbing last month has been sentenced after pleading guilty to first-degree manslaughter.

James Davis Jr. appeared in court Wednesday where he accepted a plea deal in exchange for 15 years in prison. Davis was charged with stabbing 36-year-old Keith Kern to death on July 10. Court documents say Davis was sleeping with Kern's girlfriend, and the three had run-ins before.

As part of the plea deal, Davis will also spend 15 years on probation after he's released.
