KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - A 35-year-old Grand Island man has been sentenced to life in prison for fatally shooting a co-worker outside a meatpacking plant in south-central Nebraska last year.

The Kearney Hub reports (https://bit.ly/1S6IqCI ) Angelo Bol was sentenced Tuesday morning. Bol had pleaded no contest to first-degree murder in May.

Prosecutors say Bol waited several hours and targeted 34-year-old Karel Perez-Almaguer when he shot him several times on Dec. 15 in the parking lot of Gibbon Packing in Gibbon.

Bol told the judge that he had been taunted and discriminated against at work, and Perez-Almaguer had harassed him.

Bol was fired on the day of the shooting a fight the previous day that involved Perez-Almaguer.
