A 28-year-old Longview man has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for a slashing a 50-year-old transient’s throat in the Highlands areas last September.

David Allen Holmes pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in Cowlitz County Superior Court last month.

Authorities said Holmes used a large, military-style knife to cut the throat of Kevin Thomas Watts, 50, who had been living in Volkswagen van in the Highlands.

Watts was killed during a “dispute,” police said, but was unclear what the men may have been arguing about.
