OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha man has been sentenced to life in prison for his role in the 2018 death of a U.S. Army soldier who was visiting Omaha relatives for the holidays.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that 36-year-old Jason Devers was sentenced Tuesday for first-degree murder in the shooting death of 27-year-old U.S. Army Sgt. Kyle LeFlore.

Prosecutors say Devers and another man who was the gunman accosted LeFlore outside an Omaha bar with the intent to rob him in January 2018. Police say a gold chain with LeFlore’s DNA on it was found among Devers’ belongings.
