DE SOTO, Kan. (AP) - A suburban Kansas City man has been sentenced to life in prison in the 2013 killing of a 21-year-old Prairie Village man.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1OwpYBa ) reports that 33-year-old Dustin Adam Maynard, of De Soto, was sentenced Wednesday for first-degree murder in the killing of Jordan MacDonald. Prosecutors say MacDonald was stabbed and strangled. Authorities say the victim’s body was found partially burned in a grassy area near Maynard’s apartment in October 2013.

Authorities say the two men had been at a De Soto bar together the night before and that the victim had given Maynard a ride home.

Detectives and crime scene investigators later found blood in Maynard’s apartment that was linked to MacDonald through DNA testing.
