FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - A man involved in the death of a Fort Collins woman who was beaten, stabbed and dumped in rural Larimer County has been sentenced to 60 years in prison.

The Coloradoan reports (https://goo.gl/HWPSZj ) 52-year-old Patrick Hannon was sentenced Thursday on charges of second-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping in the death of 28-year-old Andrea Bartmess. He was the second of five suspects to be sentenced.

Bartmess, who went to Hannon’s Fort Collins home to buy drugs Oct. 7, 2014, was kidnapped and beaten in a car with a collapsible baton, driven to a barn northwest of the city, bound, choked and stomped on.

Prosecutors say Hannon’s role in the death was not as significant as that of Michael Bensen, who was sentenced in December to 75 years for murder, kidnapping and criminal trespass. Still, they argued, Hannon’s actions were “egregious.”
