— A man charged in a fatal stabbing near a Raleigh bus stop more than a year ago was sentenced Friday to a maximum of 74 months in prison.

Rashon Arturo Martine pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the Dec. 10, 2007, death of Rashem Chamaul Still, 21. Police said he was stabbed multiple times.

Under his sentence, Martine will spend a minimum of 54 month in prison.

Witnesses said the assailant was upset following an argument near the Walden Woods Condominiums on Grinding Stone Drive and that he started swinging a knife at people in the area.

Another person was also stabbed in the back and was treated and released from a local hospital.
