    A 23-year-old Warwick man was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday for stabbing his nephew to death in 2016.

    Attorney General Peter F. Neronha said Jared Rogers pleaded nolo contest to multiple charges, including second-degree murder, assault with intent to commit murder and two counts of conspiracy.

    Rogers was sentenced in the killing of 20-year-old Michael Rogers. He also received 20 years for the assault with intent to murder of his brother, David Rogers, as well as 10 years for each count of conspiracy.

    Neronha said Rogers’ sentences will be served concurrently at the Adult Correctional Institute.

    “Had the case proceeded to trial, the state was prepared to prove beyond a reasonable doubt, that on March 26, 2016, Rogers along with co-conspirators were involved in the stabbing death of Michael Rogers and injured David Rogers in the home they all lived in located at 149 Haswill Street in Warwick,” Neronha said. “Jared Rogers led co-conspirators into his home and provided the weapons used to stab the victims.”
