BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Two men involved in a fatal stabbing outside a Boise strip club have each been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Parley Ward received the sentence Tuesday in 4th District Court and must serve at least five years before becoming eligible for parole.

Thirty-one-year-old Phillip Dewayne Law was sentenced Monday and must serve 7 and a half years before being eligible for parole.

Both men previously pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting voluntary manslaughter and aiding and abetting aggravated battery.

Authorities say Ward and Law were involved in a fight outside the Torch Lounge in October 2014 that left 35-year-old Humberto Herrera of Hailey dead from stab wounds.
