A Starke County judge sentenced a North Judson man to the maximum sentence behind bars on Wednesday for stabbing another man to death in 2017.

A jury found Matthew Schutz guilty in August of a single count of murder for fatally stabbing 28-year-old Bradley White with a hunting knife in January 2017 inside Schutz’s home in the 4000 block of South Dawn Drive.
