SAN CARLOS MAN SENTENCED TO 21 YEARS FOR SECOND DEGREE MURDER
PHOENIX - Today, Derrick Paul McIntosh, 26, of San Carlos, Arizona, was sentenced by U.S. District Chief Judge Roslyn O. Silver to 253 months in federal prison, to be followed by 5 years of supervised release. McIntosh entered a guilty plea on October 26, 2011, to second degree murder.
According to court records, on June 24, 2010, while at a residence on the San Carlos Community, McIntosh briefly argued with his 18 year old brother. During the argument, McIntosh grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed his brother in the leg, severing the brother’s femoral artery. McIntosh’s brother attempted to flee to avoid further injury, but collapsed after only a short distance and died as a result of blood loss from his wound.
The investigation in this case was conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the San Carlos Police Department. The prosecution was handled by Thomas Simon, Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of Arizona, Phoenix.
