COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A man has been sentenced to prison for fatally stabbing another man in Colorado Springs last year.

Daniel Alan Newell, 25, was sentenced Friday to 62 years in prison, including 48 years for the murder of Kyle Sullivan. Sullivan, 29, was found dead in a home on North Seventh Street on April 15, 2016.
