OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man acquitted of first-degree murder in a fatal shooting will spend at least 15 years in prison in a separate case.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1Ph2NOT ) 25-year-old Anthony Floyd was sentenced Tuesday to 25 to 35 years in prison on a charge of being a felon in possession of a weapon. He must serve 15 years before being eligible for parole.

Floyd was found not guilty in December in the shooting death of 31-year-old Rodney Hunt in October 2013. He was also acquitted of use of two weapons charges.

At the sentencing hearing, a judge called Floyd “extremely dangerous.”

In April 2014, while awaiting his murder trial, Floyd had his testicles partially detached during a fight with another inmate. He underwent surgery to reattach them.
