Melvin Harris, 41, was sentenced to eight years in prison after authorities say he fatally beat a man who allegedly tried to follow his teenage daughter into a restroom stall at a convenience store. 

Harris accepted a plea deal of manslaughter after initially facing a second-degree murder charge for the encounter that took place in 2018.

According to The Arizona Republic, the incident occurred when Harris arrived at a QuikTrip convenience store in Phoenix, Arizona to pick up his daughter and two of her friends. 

When his daughter came out of the store she told him that a man, later identified as Leon Armstrong, had tried to enter her stall inside the store’s restroom.

Harris then asked a store security guard to handle the situation or he would handle it himself, court records said.

Harris told police that Armstrong took a swing at him, so he reacted by punching, kicking and stomping on Armstrong, who died several days later from a severe brain injury. 

Harris had pleaded guilty to the manslaughter charge last month, according to the Republic.
