A Park Rapids man who couldn't refrain from alcohol and killed his friend in a drunken brawl in 2010 is back behind bars for a long time.


Judge Paul Rasmussen said he was disappointed in Luis Candelaria, 49, when the judge imposed a stayed adjudication of 110 months Tuesday in the 2010 death of Richard Hoskins.

At the time of Hoskins' death, Candelaria was under a court order not to drink.
