SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ A Salina man has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison for killing a man in a dispute over a stolen go-kart.

Kyle Nelson was sentenced Monday for voluntary manslaughter in the July 2012 shooting death of Jeffrey Powell.

The Salina Journal reports Nelson testified during the trial that he shot Powell in self-defense during an argument over the go-kart, which had been stolen from Nelson's children.

However, prosecutors argued there was no evidence to back up Nelson's testimony that Powell had threatened him before the shooting.
