Wichita Man Gets Maximum For 2nd Degree Murder

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for the shooting death of a Hutchinson man last year.

Felton Talib Williams Jr., 29, was convicted last month of second-degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Kenneth White on Sept. 1, 2008, after a break-in at White's home.

Williams was originally charged with first-degree murder, but jurors convicted him of the lesser charge after the defense argued Williams was heavily intoxicated at the time of the killing.

Prosecutors say Williams and two other Wichita men broke in to White's home and shot him before stealing his car.

Williams will not be eligible for parole for 20 years.
