Man Sentenced For Police Killing

Wednesday, July 27, 2011 – Anne Kramer
A Baltimore judge sentenced a 25-year-old man to ten years in prison Wednesday for the death of a city police detective.

Sian James was found guilty of manslaughter back in April in the death of Detective Brian Stevenson.

Prosecutors say Stevenson got into a dispute with James over a parking spot in Canton last October and James picked up a piece of concrete and threw it at the detective.

Stevenson was hit in the head and died.

He was off-duty and out with friends celebrating his birthday.

Investigators found James at a nightclub hours later.

Stevenson had been with the City Police Department for 18 years.
