WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 20-year-old Wichita man has been sentenced to life in prison for the shooting death of another man during a drug transaction.

District Attorney Marc Bennett’s office says Dennis Haynes must serve at least 20 years before he is eligible for parole under the sentence he received Thursday.

Haynes pleaded guilty to first-degree felony murder for killing 34-year-old Ronald Betts at a Wichita house in April 2013.

Haynes also pleaded guilty last month to two counts of attempted first-degree murder, attempted aggravated robbery and attempted possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
