A man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for the death of a North Charleston church music director found stabbed 92 times.
Thirty-year-old Tommy Montgomery was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty but mentally ill to murder in the death of Brandon Jamison.
Authorities say Jamison was the music director at the church Montgomery attended and offered the man a place to stay.
Authorities say Montgomery stabbed Jamison to death in 2009. Investigators say Montgomery stole Jamison's vehicle and fled.
Doctors say Montgomery suffered from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder because as a child he saw his father stab his mother to death and also was sexually abused by a relative.
