When police arrived, they say McHargue was found inside with a stab wound to his neck.

He was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Officials say it started after the two got into a fight in the bathroom.

Police say when they confronted Parksey, he was covered in blood while leaving the scene.

In April, a plea agreement was filed.

Thursday Parksey pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter, and was sentenced to 20 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections.
