DENVER (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for his role in the beating death of a teenager in Thornton.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/m1EDC5 ) 25-year-old Antonio Lynn Rios was sentenced Thursday for the 2010 death of 16-year-old Nathan Bozonier.

Bozonier was hit by a car and beaten with a baseball bat after a party spilled into the street and a fight broke out. Investigators say 27-year-old Lakiesha Nicole Vigil was driving the car that hit Bozonier before Rios and another man, 27-year-old Adrian Ray Quintana, beat him to death.

Quintana was sentenced to 30 years in prison, and Vigil was sentenced to 21 years in prison

Rios was initially convicted in 2011 of second-degree murder, but that was reversed in June 2014. He later pleaded guilty in the case.
