FRANKLIN COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -A Jackson man who pleaded guilty in a deadly stabbing in downtown Cape Girardeau was sentenced to four years.

Ryan Harkey pleaded guilty in a Franklin County courtroom in November on a change of venue request.

He pleaded guilty to a charge of 2nd degree involuntary manslaughter.

Harkey was originally charged with 2nd degree murder in the death of Jerry Conrad.

Investigators say the two men got into a fight inside a Cape Girardeau bar and it escalated outside in December 2011.
