Wed., 11:05am: Man sentenced in stabbing death

WARREN — A North Bloomfield man who pleaded guilty to manslaughter earlier this year in the stabbing death of another man at the Bristol Inn has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Trumbull County Common Pleas Court Judge Wyatt McKay sentenced William Helmuth, 46, in the death of Craig Neighbor, 41, who was killed during a fight at the bar on Jan. 17.

Helmuth was originally indicted on a murder charge, but he pleaded guilty to the less serious charge of voluntary manslaughter in May.
