WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Two men charged in a fatal shooting at a 2014 house party in Wichita have been sentenced.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1L2e6pM0 ) reports that Dametrius Williams was sentenced Thursday to about 17 years in prison for second-degree reckless murder and criminal discharge of a firearm in the death of 20-year-old Juan Orona. Christopher Cooper was sentenced to 18 months of probation on a count of obstructing apprehension of prosecution. Both men were initially charged with first-degree murder.

Authorities say Orona was shot in the head as he sat in a parked car.

Prosecutors say Williams and Cooper were part of a group of men who arrived at a house on June 21, 2014, and caused an argument that led to Orona’s death.
