Philadelphia man convicted in a 2014 Minot murder will serve 30 years in prison.
A jury found 39-year-old Anthony Campbell guilty in January in the stabbing death of Minot man Shannon Brunelle.
U.S. Marshals tracked Campbell down when he fled to Philadelphia shortly after Brunelle’s death.
Campbell’s attorney asked the court for leniency, arguing Brunelle’s death was part of a “meth-induced rage.”
A judge sentenced Campbell to 45 years, with 15 of that suspended. He will also serve 10 years of supervised probation upon release, and receive credit for 18 months served.
When given a chance to speak before the court, Campbell maintained his innocence.
We will have reaction from Brunelle’s family on the Evening Report.
