Omaha man sentenced to life in prison for fatal stabbing

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 63-year-old man has been given life in prison for killing his former roommate in Omaha.

Court records say Michael Juranek was sentenced on Thursday. Juranek was found guilty of first-degree murder for fatally stabbing 52-year-old Jimmy McBride on Sept. 14, 2011, in south Omaha. Officers say Juranek and McBride had gotten into a fight.

The men shared an Omaha house for a time but were evicted and were living on the streets.

Juranek also was convicted of a weapons charge.
