COVINGTON, La. (AP) - A 24-year-old Slidell man convicted in May of manslaughter, arson and obstruction of justice in the 2012 death of Ashley King, has been sentenced to 70 years in prison.

The New Orleans Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1Jo0M3j) Judge Allison Penzato gave Devin Baham 55 years on the manslaughter charge, 15 years on the arson charge and 10 on obstruction Friday. The latter two sentences will run concurrently after the manslaughter sentence ends.

A St. Tammany Parish jury convicted Baham in May for his role in the death of King, who was killed in her apartment in 2012.

Baham was the third defendant convicted in connection with King’s death. Andrew Sumner and Katelyn Lusich had already pleaded guilty.

Prosecutors say the three went to King’s apartment to rob her of drugs and money.
