A man convicted of second-degree murder for a 2013 fight at a Glendale park has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say 25-year-old Andrew Aschenbrenner was sentenced Friday.

He was convicted in the case last December.

Glendale police arrested Aschenbrenner after he was accused of throwing a knife into another man in June 2013.

The 23-year-old victim later died at a hospital from a stab wound to the chest.

According to court documents, Aschenbrenner's younger brother was involved in a fight at Sahuaro Ranch Park and called for help.

Aschenbrenner reportedly showed up armed with a knife that was up to 8 inches long and fought the man who allegedly punched his little brother in the face.
