Stamford (US): A Connecticut teenager who fatally stabbed a man outside a fast-food restaurant during a dispute over spilled coffee has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The Stamford Advocate reports 17-year-old Marquest Hall was sentenced on Tuesday by a judge who called the March 2015 killing of 52-year-old Antonio Muralles "brutal, senseless and totally unnecessary."

Hall pleaded guilty in March to first-degree manslaughter. He's eligible for parole in 12 years. Prosecutors say Muralles had just left a Stamford McDonald's with a coffee when he inadvertently bumped into Hall and a friend and spilled some coffee on them.

Hall was 15 at the time but was charged as an adult. The proceedings were held in open court. Hall did not speak at sentencing. But his lawyer says he's remorseful.
