Man Sentenced in Deadly Bar Fight


The man found guilty in a deadly fight outside a Machesney Park bar will spend time behind bars.

A judge sentenced Matthew Duncan on Tuesday afternoon to seven years in prison.  Duncan shoved Michael Eash during a confrontation at Legends Sports Bar in 2014, leading to his death.

In June, a jury found Duncan guilty of aggravated battery, but not of involuntary manslaughter.
