CORVALLIS, Ore. -- An Oregon man convicted of attacking a man at a Corvallis nail salon, causing his death, will serve 17.5 years in prison.
Than Duy Kim was sentenced Wednesday. He pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and first-degree assault. All other counts were dismissed as part of a plea agreement, said Eric Pointer, court supervisor for the Benton County Circuit Court.
Because both are Measure 11 crimes, Kim will serve the entire sentence, but he will get credit for time already served.
Kim will also complete three years of post-prison supervision and will need to pay restitution.
Court documents show Kim was arrested in December 2017 after police said he tried to kill Mitch Dong with "deliberate cruelty" using multiple weapons. Police say Dong was having an affair with Kim's ex-wife.
The documents state Kim used a baseball bat and two knives to assault Dong.
Dong suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital. He later died.
