December 30, 2005|By AUSTIN FENTON

A 21-year-old Baltimore man was sentenced yesterday to 33 years in prison for charges related to a December 2004 murder, according to the Baltimore state's attorney's office.

Devin Burrell, of the 1200 block of Ostend St., had been convicted Sept. 1 of second-degree murder and carrying a deadly weapon for the Dec. 26, 2004, killing of Nathaniel Smith Jr., 39, of the 1100 block of Ward St.

Prosecutors said Burrell and Smith were fighting over money - and an argument led to a fight in Smith's home in which Burrell kicked Smith repeatedly and then stabbed him in the chest.
