A student from the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio, was sentenced to three years in prison Tuesday for stabbing his roommate to death over fast food, according to reports. Kendal Scheid, 23, got into a drunken argument with his roommate in December 2016 over fast food that proved to escalate significantly. 

Scheid pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in October regarding the death of his 23-year-old former roommate, Duncan Unternaher. The plea agreement Scheid made with prosecutors was said to lessen his overall punishment.

The pair's drunken fight occurred at their off-campus apartment over the fast food they were eating. After Scheid grabbed a knife and stabbed Unternaher, he had attempted to apply pressure to his friend's wound, but Uternaher fell unconscious. A third roommate that lived with the pair reported the incident to local law enforcement. Unternaher was then transported to the Summa Akron City Hospital where he died two days later. 

"I am truly sorry for everything I have done," Scheid said to Unternaher's family in court, according to Cleveland.com. "I'm sorry about taking your son, brother and friend away from you, and I regret everything I've done that day. I'm sorry."

Unternaher's family also addressed the incident in court. 

"When we're all born, we're not guaranteed our next breath. I praise the Lord, my creator, that I was blessed to have Duncan for 23 years of his life," Unternaher's father said before the court, according to Fox affiliate WJW

Scheid, depending on his behavior behind bars, would be eligible to receive an early release from his three-year sentence after six months. 

Involuntary manslaughter is a  third-degree felony in Ohio. Killings classified as such are accidental as they stem from a person's recklessness, criminal negligence or in the commission of a low-level crime. The violator could receive anywhere between nine months to five years of jail time in Ohio.

An individual could receive up to 11 years in prison in Ohio if their crime qualifies as a first-degree felony, however.
