PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix man has been sentenced to 32 years in prison in the 2012 shooting death of a janitor at a Scottsdale medical complex.

Joseph Robert Castillion was sentenced Thursday to 22 years flat time for the second-degree murder and a consecutive 10-year prison term for theft.

He pleaded guilty in June.

Castillion was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and other charges in the April 24, 2012 shooting of 45-year-old Reynaldo Cruz Ramos.

Scottsdale police say Ramos and a female co-worker were at different buildings at the complex when the woman said she heard a noise she thought was cleaning equipment.

She went to check on Ramos minutes later and found him laying outside the complex and bleeding.

Ramos was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
