Man sentenced to 12 years in deadly Tower District stabbing

FRESNO, California (KFSN) -- Davin Rodriguez stabbed Jerald Riley to death in a Tower District altercation two years ago.

A judge sentenced Davin Rodriguez to 12 years behind bars. A jury found Rodriguez not guilty of second degree murder last month, but guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the death of Jerald Riley.

A witness says he saw a fight where Riley actually chased the other man across the street. They exchanged some punches, and then he heard someone scream something about getting stabbed.
