WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A homeless man has been sentenced to more than 13 years in prison for beating another homeless man to death over cigarettes.

Forty-one-year-old Patrick R. Perkins was sentenced Thursday for involuntary manslaughter and robbery in the death of 41-year-old Marshall K. Hauschulz.

Police say the beating occurred as Perkins was robbing Hauschulz of cigarettes in December 2011.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/10mUsfA ) state prison records show Perkins was paroled from prison six weeks before he killed Hauschulz. He had served time for a Reno County aggravated battery conviction and also had a 1994 Saline County conviction for aggravated robbery.
