In 2011, Concool was charged with first-degree murder for stabbing his former roommate to death. On Monday, prosecutors sentenced him to 13 years in prison after accepting no contest to voluntary manslaughter in exchange for having no contact with Dukes’ family while serving his sentence. Stacy Dukes, Stacy’s brother, expressed dissatisfaction with the verdict and asked why it should have to pay for such a terrible act.
