BELFAST, Maine (AP) -- A Maine man who pleaded guilty to killing a Florida firefighter in a dispute over drug money is going to prison for 16 years.
A judge in Belfast, Maine, on Monday imposed the sentence on Daniel Porter, who pleaded guilty to manslaughter under an agreement that capped his sentence at 20 years.
Porter, who's 25, was arrested in February 2012 at a house in Jackson where police say he killed 31-year-old Jerry Perdomo of Orange City, Fla. Porter told police that he owed the Seminole County firefighter $3,000 and that Perdomo had threatened him and his family.
Police said Porter and Perdomo had exchanged threats, with Porter threatening to put Perdomo through a wood chipper and Perdomo threatening to cut off Porter's hands.
