Chicago man sentenced to 4-and-a-half years in prison

CHICAGO - A Chicago man who was convicted of an involuntary manslaughter charge in March has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison.

Officials say Willie Hubbard, 35, received the sentence on Monday.  Hubbard was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the June 2013 death of Edward Scott, 48.

Authorities say Scott was allegedly harassing guests at a party when Hubbard punched him in the face, leading to Scott losing his balance and impaling his head on an iron fence.  Scott later died of his injuries.
