Richlands man pleads no contest in 2013 stabbing death

CARTERET COUNTY, NC (WITN) - A man who was originally charged with murder has pleaded to a lesser charge.

Curtis Pate, of Richlands, plead no contest to voluntary manslaughter in a Carteret County courtroom.

Pate was arrested back in December 2013 for the stabbing death in Cape Carteret of 33-year-old Gary Harris.

Deputies say Harris was stabbed in the neck over an argument involving a woman.

Pate was sentenced to serve between just under five years and just under seven years.
