DOVER, Delaware — A 20-year-old man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for fatally shooting his roommate during an argument.
Joshua Cathell pleaded guilty in April to second-degree murder in the death of 40-year-old Isidro Hernandez. He was sentenced Wednesday in Kent County Superior Court.
Prosecutors say Hernandez's body was found inside the trailer home he shared with Cathell on Oct. 16, 2012, after he failed to show up at work for several days. Authorities say Cathell shot Hernandez at point-blank range.
