A homeless man convicted of stabbing and killing another homeless man in Center City's LOVE Park after an argument was sentenced to eight to 25 years in prison Friday.
Frederick Mills, 47, apologized for killing Allen Jordan, 43, after a late-night confrontation in August 2011.
During a jury trial in February before Common Pleas Court Judge Linda Carpenter, Mills testified that he got into the argument with Jordan after he was roughed up and robbed of jewelry.
"He has no prior record and he's 47 years old," defense attorney Jay S. Gottlieb said of Mills. "It was an argument, and it just got out of hand."
