Man sentenced to life in prison in Wichita death

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – The owner of a Wichita auto shop will likely spend the rest of his life in prison after being convicted of killing a man by injecting him with a lethal dose of methamphetamine.

Thirty-three-year-old Dang Sean was sentenced Friday for the January 2013 death of 34-year-old Shawn Lindsey.

A life sentence for first-degree murder will run consecutively with a 77-month term for aggravated kidnapping.

Prosecutors say Lindsey was bound and tortured before Sean injected him with a quarter-ounce of meth at the Automotive Bullies car repair shop because Lindsey owed a debt to Sean.

The Wichita Eagle reports one other suspect is serving life in prison, while cases against four other men charged in Lindsey’s slaying are in various stages in the Sedgwick County court system.
