Convicted murderer Marqus Patton was sentenced Friday morning to life in prison for his role in a 2011 Omaha murder.
Judge Mike Coffey also gave Patton an additional 5-15 years for using a weapon to commit a felony.
Patton was convicted in November of killing Kris Winters, shot during a robbery attempt at his home near 51st and U streets in July 2011. Two other men, Ryan Elseman and Nicholas Ely, were also prosecuted for the murder and are serving life sentences. Elseman was alleged to have been the one who pulled the trigger.
