Kirk Harris, 25, of Fox was found guilty of criminal attempted murder in the second degree in a jury trial in Stone County Circuit Court last week.
The jury decided against the more serious charge of criminal attempted murder in the first degree
The charges stemmed from a 2014 incident in which Harris attacked Michael Pringlemeir with a knife and stabbed him multiple times. The men had been drinking.
Harris was sentenced to 20 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction, and was fined $15,000.
