Two men were sentenced Wednesday for the murder of a Lincoln man.

Adam Casares

A newspaper deliveryman found the body of 25-year-old Tyler Schoenrock along a rural road north of Lincoln on the morning of December 30, 2012. He had been shot three times.

Twenty-one-year-old Adrian Casares received life in prison without the possibility of parole. Casares had pleaded no contest to aiding and abetting second-degree murder.

Casares' family was upset by the sentence, believing that by taking a plea deal he would get a lesser sentence with the chance of parole. Family members said Casares is a good kid with a good heart.

Miguel Castillo

Twenty-four-year-old Miguel Castillo pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting second-degree murder and got a 30-50 year sentence, plus 20 years to be served consecutively for being an accessory to a felony.

It's believed Casares and Castillo became angry with Schoenrock after learning he'd been talking to law enforcement about them and their drug involvement. Each man claims the other shot Schoenrock.
