JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The sentencing phase for the man who pleaded guilty to a fatal stabbing at the Jacksonville Landing will begin in July.

Matthew Hinson entered the plea last week.

In October, witnesses say Hinson stabbed Wiliam Pettry in the neck at Fionn MacCool's Irish Pub. It happened after the Jags-Bears game.

On July 18th, the defense is expected to call its first witness.

The next day, members of Pettry's family are expected to give victim impact statements.
