A North Texas man has been sentenced to 70 years in prison over a deadly 2009 fight about a female relative.

A jury in Fort Worth on Thursday sentenced 29-year-old Roberto Sanchez after convicting him of murder.

Authorities say Sanchez fatally stabbed 30-year-old Sergio Gonzalez outside a Fort Worth bar. Officials believe the men were arguing about a woman who is a cousin to Sanchez.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Gonzalez had known the woman for two years and she was with him before deciding to leave the club with Sanchez.

A confrontation broke out between the men. Witnesses say Sanchez later bragged about the killing.
