SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) - A Sidney man who authorities say fought and killed his former father-in-law has been given prison time for violating probation.

Court records say 25-year-old Theodore Medina was sentenced on Monday in Cheyenne County District Court to 20 to 60 months for attempted felony assault and a year for misdemeanor assault. The sentences are to be served consecutively. He’d been sentenced to probation in June 2014.

Medina was arrested in November 2013 after fighting with 50-year-old Ernest Ward, of Sidney. Ward suffered brain damage and later died. Court documents say Medina lived in Ward’s house despite no longer being married to one of Ward’s daughters.
