BENTON COUNTY - A Bella Vista man has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to first-degree murder. 

Leon Lincoln Junior's plea bargain will put him behind bars for 40 years.  There will also be a 10 year suspended sentence once he is released. 

In 2012, Bella Vista police say Lincoln Jr., 42, stabbed Theresa Voshell, 46, multiple times.  Witnesses told investigators at the time that the two fought often and had both been drinking the morning of Voshell's death.
