LINCOLN, Neb. — An Omaha man has been sentenced for helping move the body of a slain man in Lincoln.

Court records say 26-year-old Sidney Jackson was given two years in prison at his sentencing Tuesday in Lincoln. He’d pleaded no contest to tampering with physical evidence. The judge credited him with 351 days already served in custody.

Jackson is one of 10 people charged in connection with the December 2016 death of 41-year-old Jamie Watson. The man believed to have pulled the trigger, Jamez Henderson, was earlier sentenced to 54 to 65 years in prison for manslaughter and drug charges.
