A man was sentenced to roughy three years in jail for his involvement in the death of his stepson.

Patrick E. Wilson, 54, Pittsburg, pleaded no contest in November to voluntary manslaughter in the death of Dustin C. Watson, his 23-year-old stepson.

Watson and Wilson had been arguing on March 30, 2008, at the home they shared. Pittsburg police arrived and found Watson stabbed.

The judge in the case ruled that the recommended sentence be reduced by two years, meaning Wilson was sentenced to 37 months (3 years, 1 month) in jail.
