Last Of 5 Suspects Sentenced In Kansas Robbery

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) The last of five defendants in a fatal robbery in Wichita has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison.

Twenty-six-year-old Francis Dupree was sentenced Thursday to 11 years and eight months for his role in the December 2011 shooting death of 19-year-old Markez Phillips.

Police say Phillips was shot after five men forced their way into a home where he was visiting his girlfriend. Phillips died about two hours later at a Wichita hospital.

The Wichita Eagle reports Dupree pleaded guilty last month to a reduced charge of second-degree murder and robbery. Three other defendants were sentenced to life in prison for first-degree murder. A fourth defendant was sentenced to 15{ years for second-degree murder.
