Citing a history of criminal assault convictions and disrespectful and callous acts toward the victim, Judge Fred Torrisi sentenced Chawn D. Summerall, 31, to 20 years in prison with nine years suspended in the death of Darrell Cavaness in January of 2008.

In December, a jury convicted Summerall of first degree assault in the case, but also dismissed a second degree murder charge.
