WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) -- A Wilmington man has pleaded in the stabbing death of a man three years ago. 

The StarNews of Wilmington reported (http://bit.ly/14Y6YsL) that 60-year-old Haneef Adib Rahamann entered an Alford plea Monday to charges of voluntary manslaughter and armed robbery. 

An Alford plea does not admit guilt but concedes there is enough evidence for a conviction. 

Forty-two-year-old Reginald Burke Bunton was found stabbed to death Sept. 1, 2010, in a public housing complex. 

Rahamann was sentenced to between 13 years and 17 years in prison. 

Police say the men had been visiting a friend in the complex when the resident left the complex to go to the store. When the man returned, he found that Bunton had been stabbed 13 times and Rahamann was gone. He was found with Bunton's wallet.
