The last of five defendants in the death of a Pittsburg State University student has been sentenced.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – A 29-year-old man has been convicted of fatally shooting his girlfriend in the parking lot of a home improvement store in Kansas City, Kansas.

The Wyandotte County prosecutor’s office announced Friday that George Lingenfelser of Bonner Springs was found guilty of second degree murder in the December 2014 killing of 29-year-old Janet Billings.

Lingenfelser was originally charged with first-degree murder for shooting Billings in the parking lot of a Lowe’s Home Improvement store. Other customers were present at the time of the shooting.

Sentencing is set for March 3rd.
