MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

A man was sentenced to 25 years on Monday after pleading guilty in a 2011 fatal stabbing at a Mt. Pleasant Walmart.

Court officials say Darius Green pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the death of 20-year-old David Moultrie.

Investigators say Moultrie was stabbed multiple times outside a Walmart in Mount Pleasant on Sept. 28, 2011.

Court documents indicate that Green provided police with a written statement saying that he had a physical altercation with Moultrie, which led to the stabbing at the Walmart in the Oakland Market shopping center on US 17 North.

According to Mt Pleasant police, the chaos began when Moultrie, a Walmart employee, and Green got into a fight outside of the store.

Police say that is when Green stabbed Moultrie, who then staggered back into Walmart's lobby where he collapsed and later died.
