FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — A Springdale man was sentenced to 18 years in prison for stabbing a man to death in 2017.
Hector Solivan, 21, pleaded guilty last month in Washington County Circuit Court to second-degree murder.
Solivan also received a 12-year suspended sentence set to begin when he’s released from the state Department of Correction.
Springdale police arrested Solivan on May 7, 2017, after they found Luis Esmurria-Anaya with multiple stab wounds on Lowell Road. Esmurria, 44, was taken to a hospital but succumbed to his injuries.
Police said they interviewed Solivan and he admitted to stabbing Esmurria.
