OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A man has been given 77 to 115 years in prison for shooting to death his former girlfriend in a parking lot just north of Omaha.

Douglas County District Court records say 21-year-old Marcus Wheeler was credited Tuesday with 455 days already served. Jurors convicted Wheeler in April of second-degree murder and a weapons crime. Prosecutors say he killed 21-year-old Kay Nelson on April 18 last year.

Prosecutors say Wheeler shot Nelson as she sat in the driver's seat of her vehicle and her 2-year-old son sat in a car seat in the back. Police say Wheeler had been fighting in the parking lot with a brother of Nelson's new boyfriend before grabbing a gun and shooting her.
