A man convicted of killing a Regina senior has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

With credit for time served, Dale Stonechild will spend another eight years behind bars.

Last May, Stonechild was found guilty of manslaughter in the death of 80-year-old Victor McNab.

McNab's body was found in January 2013 inside his home on Rae Street in Regina. He had been severely beaten and stabbed.
