An Ashley County jury sentenced a Eudora man to 50 years after finding him guilty of murder last week.
In July, Erskine Flamer,24, was arrested and charged with killing Deunte Stanley in a Hamburg park.
A police report from the Hamburg Police Department at the time alleged that Flamer stabbed Stanley to death in Pine Street Park in Hamburg on July 25.
Flamer was charged with second degree murder and tampering with physical evidence.
Last week, Flamer went before 10th Circuit Court Judge Bynum Gibson and a jury for the July charges.
Testimony from the medical examiner at trial said Stanley was stabbed in the heart.
The jury found Flamer guilty of second-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence and sentenced him to 50 years in the Arkansas Department of Corrections for the murder charge and three years for the tampering charge.
Flamer was charged as a habitual offender and the sentences are to run concurrent.
Deputy Prosecutor Frank Spain represented the state in the case.
