OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 26-year-old man has been imprisoned for his role in the drug deal slaying of another Omaha resident.

Online court records say Absalom Scott was sentenced on Tuesday in Douglas County District Court to 44 to 50 years in prison. He’d pleaded guilty to being an accessory to murder and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Scott and two other men were arrested after 59-year-old Frank Sanders was fatally shot in his home on July 20, 2014. Scott’s charges were reduced after he made a deal with prosecutors to testify against one of his accomplices.
