Oregon man gets life in prison, parole, for stabbing death

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon man has been sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for allegations that he stabbed another man to death following a bar confrontation and car crash.

The Statesman Journal reports that 27-year-old Darnell Harris was convicted of killing 32-year-old Andrew Ramon, tampering with a witness and soliciting the murder of a witness.

Salem police found Ramon dead behind the wheel of a vehicle in November 2016, but investigators found he actually died after being stabbed multiple times.

Harris is accused of following Ramon in a vehicle after they had a confrontation at a bar. Authorities say Ramon crashed into a tree while being followed, and Harris approached the crash and stabbed him while he was in the vehicle.

Harris pleaded guilty to murder Sept. 29.
