JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 42-year-old Jacksonville man was sentenced Wednesday morning to life in prison for the 2013 stabbing death of another man.

In August, a jury convicted Charles Reeder III of second-degree murder for killing 57-year-old Earl Griffin.

In February 2013, officers found Griffin lying on the ground behind a Beach Boulevard laundromat.

The investigation revealed that Reeder and Griffin were together behind the business when Reeder repeatedly stabbed him.
