Man gets 30 years for killing stepfather

A Roane County man who stabbed his stepfather to death earlier this year will serve 100 percent of a 30-year sentence.

Steven Edward Jones, 46, agreed to a plea agreement Friday to second-degree murder in the stabbing death of Fred Silvey at the home Jones shared with Silvey and Jones’ mother, Carolyn Silvey.

District Attorney General Russell Johnson said he is “well pleased with this result, especially in the manner that all sides came together to bring a swift and just result in this tragic crime.”
