A New Bedford man convicted of second degree murder in the stabbing death of Joshua Fitzgerald of Fairhaven has been sentenced to life in prison.

Brandon Callender was sentenced today to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years.

He was also sentenced to 5-8 years following the life sentence for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in connection to the nonfatal stabbing of Patrick Fitzgerald.

Callender got into a fight with both Fitzgerald's outside a VFW hall after a party back in 2008.
