    A Massachusetts man convicted of murdering a man in a barroom attack has been sentenced to life in prison.

    Paul J. Fahey was sentenced Thursday morning for a second degree murder by Superior Court Judge Thomas Connors at his sentencing hearing in Norfolk Superior Court.

    Fahey was found guilty on Tuesday after a week-long trial in the 2015 death of Keith W. Boudreau.

    Prosecutors argued Fahey's attack on Boudreau, who was standing in a Quincy bar on March 23, 2015, was unprovoked.

    "The witnesses saw as he struck Boudreau, sending him to the ground, and then stomped on him while he was on the ground," Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey said.

    Boudreau died days later in a hospital room.

    Fahey will be eligible for parole in 15 years.
