Pima County man sentenced in dad’s stabbing death

TUCSON, Ariz. — A Pima County man who admitted to fatally stabbing his
father with a broken golf club has been sentenced to 10.5 years in prison.

County prosecutors say 35-year-old Brian Gene Harmon was sentenced Monday after
pleading guilty to manslaughter in January.

The Arizona Daily Star says Harmon was facing a prison
term of between seven and 21 years.

He entered into a plea agreement right before his scheduled trial on a
first-degree murder charge.

Authorities say 56-year-old Phillip Harmon was killed at his home on New Year’s
Day 2010.

Prosecutors say Brian Harmon hit his father with a golf club and when it broke,
he stabbed him in the abdomen with it.

He then fled the scene, but was taken into custody after returning to his
father’s house.
