Man sentenced to nearly 10 years in Kansas shooting

LINCOLN, Kan. (AP) — The son of a central Kansas sheriff was sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison for the shooting death of another man he called his best friend.

Thirty-four-year-old Scott Weigel was sentenced Monday to nine years and nine months in prison for the September 2013 death of 21-year-old Keith Ancell in Lincoln.

Weigel, the son of Lincoln County Sheriff Mike Weigel, was convicted in November of second-degree murder. Testimony at the trial indicated the shooting happened while the men were partying with friends.

The Salina Journal reports Weigel read a statement calling Ancell his best friend and apologizing to Ancell’s family and his own.
