ALFRED, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Michael Swenson has been sentenced to 38 years for the stabbing death of Roger White in Old Orchard Beach.
Swenson and White had been drinking together at a bar in April of last year. The next day White's body was found under a pile of old mattresses in empty lot in downtown Old Orchard Beach.
Swenson claims that White had been taunting him and the two left the bar to settle their differences. The state claimed the stabbing may have been premeditated.
Swenson entered into a plea agreement in June where his sentence would be capped at 40 years.
