OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 56-year-old man has been imprisoned for killing his Omaha neighbor.

Robert Inman was sentenced Tuesday to eight to 10 years in prison. He’d pleaded no contest to a manslaughter charge in the death of 48-year-old John Hanes. The two lived near each other at a mobile home park.

Prosecutors say Hanes took a meal of pot roast, potatoes and carrots to Inman’s home early in the morning on Aug. 29, 2015, in hopes of partying. But that pre-dawn disruption of their sleep angered Inman and his roommate. Prosecutors say a fight broke out, and Inman put Hanes in a chokehold to subdue him.

Inman says he called 911 later after realizing Hanes wasn’t breathing.
