BRUNSWICK, Ga. – Three weeks after a Glynn County jury convicted John Renay Wilson Jr. of voluntary manslaughter and other charges for killing Christopher Bailey Jr. during a fight in Brunswick in October 2018, a judge sentenced Williams to 25 years in prison.

Prosecutors said evidence showed Wilson punctured a tire of Bailey's car before finding him at a home on Gordon Street and fighting with him. Once the two separated, Wilson stabbed Bailey in the heart, causing his death.

In addition to manslaughter, Wilson was found guilty of aggravated assault and possession of a knife. Wilson was sentenced Friday by Superior Court Judge Rodger Lane.
