WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man who was one of six people charged in a shooting death has been sentenced to life in prison.

Twenty-two-year-old Kyle Beltz will be eligible for parole in 20 years. He was also Thursday to a concurrent 67 months for attempted possession of marijuana with intent to sell.

Beltz took part in the death of 33-year-old Ronald Betts, who was shot while trying to sell marijuana.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/KTnfbP ) Beltz lived in the house where the sale was to take place. Prosecutors say three people came to the home intending to steal the drugs, rather than pay for them. Everyone in the room was armed and a shootout began, killing Betts.
