NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 28 years in prison in the killing of a New Hampshire man on a city bike path.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2eMG3tZ) that Stephan Peno, of Nashua, pleaded guilty Wednesday to three charges, including second-degree murder, in the death of 49-year-old Benjamin Marcum.

Prosecutors say Peno and another man planned to commit a robbery on March 12, 2015 and the two confronted Marcum on a bicycle path.

Investigators say Peno beat and kicked Marcum. The other man, Jonathan Goff, is accused of stabbing Marcum and is scheduled for trial next year.
