JACKSONVILLE, Fla. –
A 47-year-old Jacksonville man was recently sentenced to life in prison for the 2012 stabbing death of another man.
John Swearingen was convicted in November of second-degree murder with a weapon.
In March 2012, Swearingen, Richard Haddon and two others were hanging out at the Pirate\’s Cove beach area off of Heckscher Drive. During that time, Swearingen became angry with Haddon and began chasing him around a car with a knife.
