NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Months after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter in connection with a fatal stabbing in Norfolk in August 2018, a 55-year-old man has been sentenced to prison.

James H. Jones, 55, was sentenced Friday to four years with one year and four months suspended, leaving him two years and 8 months to active time to serve. His sentencing happened in Norfolk Circuit Court.

Jones was originally charged with second-degree murder.
