The killer of Kansas City, Kansas, police Capt. Robert David Melton was sentenced Friday to life in prison.
Jamaal R. Lewis, 22, had previously pleaded guilty to first-degree felony murder, which carries a mandatory life sentence, and charges of aggravated assault and shooting into an unoccupied dwelling.
Wyandotte County District Judge Wesley Griffin handed down the maximum sentences on the lesser charges, 13 months and nine months respectively, and ordered them to run consecutively after the life sentence.
Lewis will be eligible for parole after 25 years.
