A Bryan man will spend a long time behind bars for a sexual encounter that led to a brutal murder a year ago. Thomas Ashford pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to 35 years. He stabbed 60-year-old Alfred Nahapetian inside his north Harris County home in June 2009.

Ashford said he met the victim at an adult video store, and went home with him. A sexual encounter went bad, and Ashford stabbed Nahapetian dozens of times. A fingerprint led to Ashford's arrest.
