HOLTON, Kan. -- A 23-year-old northeast Kansas man has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for his role in a January shooting death.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Lloyd Wabaunsee of Mayetta was sentenced Friday in Jackson County District Court for second-degree murder. He pleaded no contest to the charge in September after the prosecution agreed to recommend the sentence.
Because of his criminal history, Wabaunsee normally would have faced a sentence ranging from about 18 1/2 to 20 1/2 years.
Wabaunsee was found hiding in the trunk of a car in a grocery store parking lot in Urbandale, Iowa, about a week after 29-year-old Kevin Stanley was shot at his Mayetta home. After the discovery, Wabaunsee and three others were arrested.
Wabaunsee was the last defendant to be sentenced.
