Man sentenced to 40 years for killing his mother


SPRINGFIELD- A man will spend the next 40 years in prison after he was convicted of stabbing his mother to death. He claimed he did not like the rules she gave him.

The rules did not allow Michael Seal to drink alcohol on the property and he had to have a job.

Seal was sentenced Friday for the death of Darla Key back in 2009. He was convicted of murder last August.

Seal wanted a new trial, but it was rejected by the judge on Friday before sentencing.
