Garden City Man Sentenced To 10 Years

Associated Press - March 29, 2014 4:45 pm

A 21-year-old man has pleaded no contest to a murder charge in the 2014 death of a Pittsburg State student.

A 34-year-old man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for the 2011 stabbing death of a Garden City man.

Fred Schmidt pleaded guilty on Feb. 11 to second-degree murder in the March 29, 2011, stabbing death of 24-year-old Jeffrey Nichols.

The Garden City Telegram reports Finney County District Court Judge Robert Frederick sentenced Schmidt Friday to 10 years and three months.

Garden City police say Schmidt told them he and Nichols fought near Nichols’ home. Schmidt claimed he killed Nichols in self-defense.
