SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- A Salina man was sentenced to nearly six years in prison for killing a man in a dispute over a stolen go-kart.

Kyle A. Nelson was sentenced Monday for voluntary manslaughter in the July 2012 shooting death of 37-year-old Jeffrey B. Powell.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/YRd2fj ) Nelson testified during the trial that he shot Powell in self-defense during an argument over the go-kart, which had been stolen from Nelson's children.

However, prosecutors argued there was no evidence to back up Nelson's testimony that Powell had threatened him before the shooting.
