staff - March 5, 2016 6:10 am

A 21-year-old man has pleaded no contest to a murder charge in the 2014 death of a Pittsburg State student.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – A 29-year-old man has been sentenced to 15 1/2 years in prison for the killing of his girlfriend in the parking lot of a home improvement store in Kansas City, Kansas.

The Kansas City Star reports that George Lingenfelser of Bonner Springs was sentenced Thursday. He was convicted 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.
