OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to life in prison in the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old in Omaha last year.

A judge issued the sentence Tuesday for 19-year-old Adrian Lester in connection with the April 2014 death of Tielor (TYE’-lur) Williams. A jury convicted Lester earlier this year of first-degree murder.

Police say Lester shot Williams five times in the face during a robbery at Gallagher Park in Omaha.

Dennis Brewer Jr., another man charged in connection with the shooting, was acquitted by a jury in March. Attorneys for Brewer argued that Lester shot Williams.
