LOWELL, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say a Lowell man has been sentenced to life in prison for fatally shooting a 20-year-old woman and wounding others at a New Year’s party five years ago.

Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan announced Saturday that 24-year-old Sothy Voeun was also sentenced to an additional five years in prison for eight counts of armed assault with intent to murder.

Voeun was convicted Feb. 1 of first-degree murder and other charges.

Prosecutors say Voeun and 25-year-old Jameson Phuon, of Lowell, were thrown out of the party and returned with guns in the early morning hours of Jan. 1, 2011 and opened fire.

Corinna Oeur was killed. Seven victims suffered gunshot wounds to the neck, head, jaw and other areas.

Phuon was sentenced in March 2015 to life in prison.
