Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- A second Fort Wayne man is headed to jail in the beating death of a 20-year-old Fort Wayne man last summer.

23-year-old Anthony Tate, on the right in the video, was sentenced to 8-years for his role in the death of William Fett-Junior.

Tate, who has a long history of arrests, apologized to Fett's family before learning his sentence.

In November, 18-year-old Paul Prater was sentenced to 30-years for Fett's killing.

An autopsy determined that Fett was hit in the head with a hammer several times in his apartment off Illinois Road in June of last year.
