A South Side man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for fatally stabbing Aaron Knox during a fight in the New City neighborhood in 2013.

Terrance Anderson, 28, was found guilty of second-degree murder on March 17 after a bench trial before Judge Timothy Joseph Joyce, according to Cook County court records.

Anderson and the 29-year-old Knox got into a fight about 9:30 p.m. June 28, 2013, in the 1000 block of West Garfield Boulevard. At some point, Anderson grabbed a knife and stabbed Knox multiple times, authorities said at the time.

Knox, of the 5600 block of South King Drive, died the next day at Stroger Hospital, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Judge Joyce sentenced Anderson to 15 years in prison Friday, according to court records. He was admitted to the Stateville Correctional Center in Crest Hill on Monday, and will receive credit for 972 days served in the Cook County Jail.

He previously served a two-year sentence for manufacturing and delivering cannabis.
