A judge has reduced the sentence of one of two men convicted in the 2005 slaying of an openly gay man in Montrose by 10 years.
Jason Fiske was re–sentenced Monday following an appeals court ruling. He had pleaded guilty to man slaughter and robbery charges in the death of 36–year–old Kevin Hale.
The judge cut Fiske's original 22–year sentence to six years on each charge, to be served consecutively, leaving Fiske a total of 12 years in prison.
Hale died after an altercation with Fiske and Adam Hernandez at a Montrose Park.
Hernandez is also serving a prison term after pleading guilty to manslaughter and theft.
