MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Madison man will spend 18 years in prison for stabbing another man to death last year.

28-year-old Bernard Brown Jr. avoided a possible life sentence by striking a plea deal that convicted him of second-degree intentional homicide and reckless endangerment.

A Dane County judge also ordered Brown to spend 15 years under extended supervision when he leaves prison.

Prosecutors said the murder victim – 23-year-old Clifton Jones Jr. – was involved in a fight at a Madison gas station, and was getting into a car when Brown stabbed him in the heart.

It happened in late March of last year. Authorities said Brown also stabbed a woman in the arm during the fight.
