Lawrence Man Sentenced to Life for Fatal 2014 Home Invasion
A Kansas man has been sentenced to life in prison for a 2014 home invasion that left another man dead.
The Kansas City Star reports 31-year-old Dustin Walker of Lawrence must serve 20 years before he is eligible for parole after being sentenced Friday.
The life sentence was ordered to run consecutively with a sentence of 10 years and 10 months for aggravated burglary.
Walker was found guilty last month of first-degree murder for the March 2014 killing of Patrick Roberts.
Roberts was fatally shot inside a Lawrence apartment after two men broke in and demanded, "Where is it?"
Roberts' brother wrestled the gun from one of the intruders, who fled. A co-defendant previously was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 20 years.
