SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A man accused of fatally stabbing his roommate in Sioux City has been convicted.

Woodbury County District Court records show 39-year-old Elmi Said was found guilty Wednesday of a lesser charge: voluntary manslaughter. He’s also known as Abdiqadar Sharif. Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 1.

He’d been charged with second-degree murder for the Oct. 28 slaying of 40-year-old Guled Nur.

Prosecutors say Said stabbed and kicked Nur after an altercation broke out at their apartment.
