COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - The last of three defendants has been sentenced in the death of a Council Bluffs man.

On Tuesday 23-year-old Christopher King, of Lincoln, Nebraska, was given five years in prison. He’d pleaded guilty to theft after prosecutors lowered the charge.

Iowa authorities say King, Caine Petersen and Sarael Duncan robbed 20-year-old Jacob Combs of marijuana on Aug. 15 last year in Council Bluffs. Authorities say Combs jumped onto Petersen’s vehicle as the three men fled but then fell or was thrown, suffering head injuries. Combs died in a hospital later that day.

Petersen, of Council Bluffs, and Duncan, of Omaha, Nebraska, were given 10 years in prison after making their plea deals.
