ERIE COUNTY, Ohio (WOIO) - The man who was found guilty by jury of murdering a Golden Corral employee in Perkins Towns faced a judge for sentencing on Wednesday.

Demetrius Hall was sentenced to life in prison. The judge ordered that he could be parole eligible after serving 33 years.

According to investigators, Hall stabbed 32-year-old Cevin Stanley to death in December 2019.

Detectives initially said Hall was a customer inside the Milan Road restaurant when he got into an argument with Stanley, who was a Golden Corral cook.
