ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man involved in a brutal crime against a homeless man was sentenced Thursday.

Anderson Humphrey, 34, was convicted in February. Police said he and three others beat up and stabbed a homeless man, then made him shower to wash away the evidence.

The judge sentenced him to four years.

Humphrey maintains his innocence.

“I can’t admit guilty to something I didn’t do, but I’m sorry it happened to him, but I should’ve done things different that day,” Humphrey said.

Prosecutors plan on filing documents to prove he’s a habitual offender. If found guilty, he could face another 24 years.
