A Wisconsin trucker will spend 25 years in prison for the road-rage stabbing of a fellow trucker on the side of a Chicago-area expressway.
David Seddon of Racine was sentenced Thursday. The 49-year-old apologized in a suburban Chicago courtroom for the Jan. 15 attack and called it "stupid human pride."

He was convicted of first-degree murder in November after admitting he knifed 40-year-old Alan Lauritzen of Sparta, Wis., after they both pulled off on the Edens Expressway near suburban Northbrook. Seddon said he was acting in self-defense.
