Man gets 24 years in prison in death of concrete firm worker

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man has been sentenced to 24 years and one month in prison in the death of a concrete company worker.

The Wichita Eagle reports that 35-year-old Donnie Lalonde was sentenced Tuesday in the February 2014 shooting of 44-year-old Efren Antonio Villarreal-Alvarado. He had pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and aggravated robbery.

Authorities say co-workers found Villarreal-Alvarado in his car in the parking lot of Santana Concrete with a gunshot wound to the chest. He later died at a hospital.

Deon Nolan Hale faces first-degree murder and aggravated robbery charges in the case. His trial is set to begin Nov. 2.
