Canadian man sentenced for murder of US sailor

A Canadian man convicted of manslaughter in the stabbing death of a US sailor was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison. Justice Felix Cacchione of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court sentenced Cory Wright to 15 years, but reduced his time in jail to 11 years after taking into account time already served. Wright pleaded guilty two years ago to fatally stabbing Damon Crooks during a 2006 bar brawl at a Halifax, Nova Scotia nightclub.
