After the two left the bar, Powell drove to a parking lot, where the victim was found and ran over him. The State Attorney's Office said Powell got out of his truck and stabbed the victim in the throat.

Powell faces up to 45 years in prison. The State Attorney's Office said he is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 17.
