FORT STOCKTON - A Fort Stockton man, convicted of stabbing a homeless person to death, will spend the next two decades behind bars.

24-year-old Dustin Allen Horton was sentenced to 20 years after he plead guilty to murder in court last week.

You'll remember last year Horton confessed to his mother that he stabbed a homeless man several times with a knife and dumped his body at the landfill.

Investigators say the story was backed up by the large amount of blood in his apartment.

The victim still has not been identified.
