LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An Angelina County judge has sentenced a Lufkin man who beat another man with a tire iron to eight years in prison.

Judge Bob Inselmann handed down the sentence on Monday. Demario Jeniod Hill, 26, pleaded guilty to the charge of aggravated assault in January.

Hill was arrested in April 2014 after police determined he was the one who assaulted another man in Jan. 2014.

The victim told the responding Lufkin Police officer that he was talking to another person when Hill walked up to him and started hitting him with the tire iron.

The victim later identified Hill from a photo lineup.
