SALINA, Kan. (AP) - A central Kansas man will have to serve at least 50 years in prison after being convicted in the death of a 17-year-old girl.

The Salina Journal reports (https://j.mp/29pOsA5 ) Macio D. Palacio Jr. was sentenced Friday to life in prison in the 2015 death of Allie Saum. His sentence requires that he serve a minimum of 50 years before he’s eligible for parole. He was convicted earlier of first-degree, premeditated murder in Saum’s fatal shooting.

Saum was struck and killed when Palacio fired into a truck she was riding in.

Judge Rene Young imposed sentences for additional crimes but ordered those sentences to be served at the same time as his life sentence.

Palacio was also ordered to pay more than $8,000 in court costs, fees and restitution.
