A man involved in a fatal stabbing outside of the Torch Lounge in Boise on October 16th, 2014, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Phillip DeWayne Law pleaded guilty to aiding/abetting voluntary manslaughter and aiding/abetting aggravated battery following the death of 35-year-old Humberto Herrera.
Law and his accomplice, Parley Ward, were involved with a fight involving Herrera and a fourth man.
Witnesses told police that the fight started between both groups of men after a dispute involving a cab.
The fight was broken up by security.
After the initial argument, Ward and Law left in a vehicle but later returned after circling back into the rear parking lot of the nightclub.
Ward reportedly put Herrera in a chokehold and stabbed him in the chest while Law fought the other man.
Both men fled on foot following the stabbing and police found Ward and Law hiding underneath a ramp of a portable classroom on the grounds of an elementary school shortly before 4 AM.
Ward will appear in court for sentencing on May 10th, 2016 at 10:00 a.m.
