OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 20-year-old man has been sentenced to 70 years to life in prison in the death of a man in a south Omaha parking lot.

Ary Soto was sentenced Friday in the January death of 20-year-old Roberto Gonzalez. Soto had pleaded no contest to second-degree murder. Prosecutors say Soto lured Gonzalez to a parking lot by claiming in a Facebook post to be a woman who wanted to sell $30 worth of marijuana and fatally shot him.

According to prosecutors, Soto believed the victim had shot at Soto’s mother’s house the night before.

Three other co-defendants are awaiting sentencing in the case.
