HOUSTON (AP) - A fourth Houston man has been sentenced for his role in the 2012 fatal shooting of an individual over a pair of Air Jordan sneakers the victim had just bought.

As part of a plea agreement with prosecutors, Kegan Arrington was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Friday after pleading guilty to aggravated robbery, escaping a possible capital murder conviction.

The 23-year-old was the final suspect sentenced in the slaying. Two other men have been convicted of capital murder for the death of 22-year-old Joshua Woods, while a third also pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery.

Woods was sitting in a car on Dec. 21, 2012, with a pair of newly purchased Air Jordan XI “Bred” sneakers that retailed for $185 when he was killed.
