The last of five defendants in the death of a Pittsburg State University student has been sentenced.
A Lansing man was sentenced to nearly 11 years in prison for throwing human waste at two jail guards.
Leavenworth County officials say 50-year-old Marcus Crawford was also sentenced Wednesday to nearly three years for burglary and impersonating an officer.
Crawford was arrested in December 2011 after he tried to enter a Lansing home, claiming he was a police detective with a search warrant. The residents fought back and he fled before being arrested.
While at the jail, Crawford refused meals and covered the windows of his cell with toilet paper. Prosecutors say when two guards tried to enter the cell, Crawford threw a milk carton containing human waste at them.
