Judge sentences Wichita man to prison in shooting death

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a 21-year-old man to prison for his role in the 2013 death of an Arkansas man.

The Wichita Eagle reports a Sedgwick County judge on Thursday ordered Dijon Thomas of Wichita to serve a 38-month sentence on an involuntary manslaughter conviction and 26 months for marijuana possession.

A spokesman for the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office says the sentences will run concurrently.

Thomas was one of four men charged in the death of Paul Danny Khmabounheuang, who was visiting relatives when a shootout occurred during a robbery at a house in November 2013.

The other men convicted in the killing are Corey Pollard, Dallas Guy and Orville Smith.
