Winona, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Red Wing man was sentenced today to 12 years in prison for his conviction on a second-degree murder charge.

38-year-old Sean Emmons earlier entered a guilty plea to the charge in Winona County Court for a stabbing that occurred last September. Emmons was accused of stabbing another man in the leg after he caught the victim in bed with his girlfriend.

According to the criminal complaint, the victim waited two days before seeking medical attention and died four days after the attack. An autopsy determined his death was caused by complications of the stab wound and ruled it a homicide.

The plea deal in the case led to the dismissal of a felony assault charge connected to the stabbing. It also resulted in the dismissal of multiple felony drug charges against Emmons, including a charge involving the alleged sale of methamphetamine in Olmsted County.
