The Farmington Daily Times reports Trustin Begay was sentenced as a juvenile Thursday after a jury found him guilty last week of voluntary manslaughter in the death of 28-year-old Steven Begay.

Steven Begay was stabbed multiple times in Farmington in April 2018.

Trustin Begay apologized to the family in court.

Judge Sarah Weaver said she would have imposed a tougher sentence if she could.

The judge told Begay that she hopes he is truly sorry and takes this opportunity to change his life.
