|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.
