PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- The fourth and final suspect in the death of a Kansas man two years ago has been sentenced to prison.

Twenty-nine-year-old Nathan Whitney of Joplin, Mo., was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison for second-degree murder in the October 2011 death of 21-year-old Ryan Bailey in Pittsburg. Three other charges were dropped.

Bailey was killed during a botched robbery at his home.

Three other men, all from Joplin, have pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and other charges and received longer sentences than Whitney.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/O1cXaN ) Whitney's 10-year term for murder will run consecutively to a sentence he is serving in Missouri for receiving stolen property. He will be on parole for three years after serving his sentence and must register as a violent offender.
