A sentencing date has been set for the man who murdered a Chicago Bears fan in Jacksonville, Florida.

Matthew Hinson, 28, will be sentenced October 17th.

He cut the throat of Lake Villa resident William Pettry, who was in Florida for a Bears game.

Hinson pleaded guilty to second degree murder.

He could be sentenced to life in prison.
