(KCEN) -- A man who was charged with murder in July in Copperas Cove has now been convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
Nineteen-year-old Cody Parlato was found guilty of killing 46-year-old Darien Brodeur at the Five Hills Apartments on East Highway 190.
Witnesses said Parlato and Brodeur got into a fight and during the fight, Parlato slashed Brodeur's throat and ran from the apartment.
Parlato was arrested and held on a one-million-dollar bond.
Today, a jury found him guilty of the murder and sentenced him to spend the rest of his life behind bars.
