Kansas man sentenced to more than 25 years in prison for shooting death in Junction City


MANHATTAN, Kansas — A 35-year-old Kansas City, Kansas, man was sentenced to more than 25 years in prison for the shooting death of a Junction City man.

Anthony Nichols was sentenced Monday in Geary County District Court for the September 2013 death of 37-year-old Anthony Nixon.

Nichols pleaded no contest in April to voluntary manslaughter and aggravated robbery in Nixon's death.

The Manhattan Mercury reports (http://bit.ly/1M4lXEd ) Nichols is still facing a first-degree murder charge in the death of 68-year-old John Burroughs in Manhattan the day before Nixon was killed.

Nichols is accused of shooting and wounding Burroughs. His trial in that case is scheduled for July 28.

Another man, 34-year-old James McKenith of Manhattan, was sentenced in May 2014 to life in prison for stabbing and killing Burroughs.
