A Prince Albert, Sask. man who has been found guilty of beating another man to death in a drunken brawl will have to serve 15 years in prison before he's eligible for parole.

Wayne Moshenko received an automatic life sentence after a jury convicted him on Oct. 9 in the second-degree murder of Ricky Bear. 

During the trial, the Prince Albert jury heard that the two men were drinking together in 2011 when Moshenko and another man assaulted Bear for at least five minutes. 

Bear, who was from Muskoday First Nation, died on the side of a city road. 

Ricky Bear's brother, Ted Bear, spoke to media last week and said the community was hit hard by the death.  He said that they've finally found closure in Moshenko's conviction. 

The second man involved in the beating pleaded guilty to manslaughter
