Man Sentenced To 55 Years In Kosciusko Co. For Stabbing Cousin

WARSAW, Ind. (AP) — An Illinois man has been sentenced to 55 years in prison in the 2017 stabbing death of his cousin in Indiana.

Court records show 36-year-old Derrick Lavelle Wandrick was sentenced in Kosciusko Circuit Court on Monday as part of a plea agreement. His cousin, David Lamont Strowder Jr., was stabbed 63 times and left in a ditch.

Wandrick has claimed he has no recollection of the incident. Wandrick’s attorney, Jay Rigdon, says his client is sorry. The victim's family declined comment.
