SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) - An Albany man convicted of second-degree murder in the shooting death of a 26-year-old man is heading to prison.

Twenty-four-year-old Carlson Nunes was sentenced on Tuesday to 22 years to life behind bars in the February 2015 shooting of Carlos Figueroa.

Prosecutors say Nunes and four others drove to Schenectady to rob Figueroa and another man of a quarter-pound of marijuana. Investigators say Nunes pistol-whipped Figueroa and shot him in the neck, killing him.

Nunes was arrested and charged days after the slaying.
