DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit man convicted of armed robbery in connection with the slaying of a 23-year-old French street artist has been sentenced to 16 to 40 years in prison.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 18-year-old Dionte Travis appeared Wednesday in circuit court.

A hung jury led to a mistrial last month on murder and gun charges. Travis’ retrial on those charges is scheduled for Nov. 30.

Bilal Berreni was found dead with a gunshot wound to the face in July 2013.

Drequone Rich and Jasin Curtis have both pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in Berreni’s death. Another suspect who was 13 at the time of the killing faces trial later this year.
