NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The man convicted of stabbing an off-duty employee at an O’Charley’s restaurant in August 2008 will spend the next five and a half years behind bars.
David Kimball was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced Friday.
Police said he stabbed Eris Bruno inside the restaurant on Bell Road in Antioch after going to the restaurant to collect $10 in drug money a waiter owed him.
When Kimball walked into the restaurant, he was confronted by Bruno, an off-duty kitchen supervisor, who just so happened to be inside.
The confrontation immediately became heated and resulted in the stabbing.
Bruno was stabbed in the neck and chest, and died on the scene.
