Oregon Man Sentenced for Fatal Stabbing Outside Pendleton Woolen Mills

Posted: Updated:
 PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon man will spend 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the fatal stabbing of a man outside the Pendleton Woolen Mills.
    
Joseph Quintana Jr., 35, also pleaded guilty to assaulting an officer at the Umatilla County Jail.
    
Quintana was indicted in July 2012, almost two years to the day after 46-year-old Allen Anthony Spencer was stabbed to death.
    
Sheriff Terry Rowan said earlier this year that Quintana got into few fights while awaiting trial. In one, he used a cup and the floor as weapons when he attacked a 52-year-old inmate.
    
In another, Quintana reacted violently when an inmate changed the TV channel. When a guard tried to break up the fight, Quintana hit him, too.
