DETROIT – A man convicted of killing another man at a marijuana grow operation in Detroit was sentenced on Thursday. 

Jason Alan Boyce, 43, was charged with second-degree murder for the Oct. 22, 2016 stabbing death of 55-year-old Obiedious Warren Moore in the 100 block of South Green Street. Moore was died from multiple stab wounds. 

Boyce was sentenced to 10-22 years in prison with two years time served. 

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office said the men were in a verbal argument over the proceeds from their marijuana grow operation when Boyce picked up a sharp instrument and stabbed Moore in the neck. 

The case went to trial earlier this year. Boyce was found guilty by a jury on June 15.
