PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- Two 18-year-old Joplin, Mo., men were each sentenced to 14 years and four months in prison for their part in the killing of a Pittsburg man.

Oscar DeLeon Jr. and Randu Rivera were sentenced Tuesday in the death of 21-year-old Ryan Clay Arlan Bailey at his home.

Bailey was shot in October 2011. His wife and two young children were in the house at the time.

Another man, 22-year-old Rickey R. Smith of Joplin, fired the fatal shot. He was sentenced in January to nearly 27 years in prison. DeLeon and Rivera waited outside while Smith and another man, Nathan Whitney of Joplin, went into Bailey's house.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/Nh5h1t ) Whitney, who is charged with first-degree murder, in custody in Missouri on a probation violation.
