KC man sentenced to 30 years for home invasion shooting

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 22-year-old Kansas City man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for killing a University of Missouri-Kansas City student and shooting three others during a home invasion near the school.

Alonzo Ruff pleaded guilty in October to the March 21, 2013, shooting death of 23-year-old Aaron Markarian of Warrensburg. Police say intruders robbed eight people in the home, including the four who were shot.

Police said Markarian lived in the home, where the occupants had invited several people to a party.

Ruff pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, three counts of assault, robbery and five counts of armed criminal action. The sentence was part of a deal with prosecutors in exchange for his plea.

He was sentenced Friday to 30 years on each count, with the sentences running concurrently.
