Topeka man gets 6 years in carjacking case

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas man has been sentenced to nearly six years in federal prison for his role in a carjacking.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says 29-year-old Shaun Kendall of Topeka pleaded guilty to one count of carjacking on Monday. He was sentenced to five years and 10 months in prison.

Authorities say Kendall and another man threatened the driver of a 1999 Dodge Dakota in January before stealing the truck.

The other man charged in the carjacking is scheduled to be in court in December.
