An Oberlin, Kansas man has been sentenced to more than 17 years in prison after a jury convicted him of second-degree murder.
25-year-old Dylan Coryell was sentenced in Decatur County District Court on Monday.
Coryell was convicted in the shooting death of 22-year-old Corey Cook, of Oberlin, in March.
Prosecutors say Coryell killed Cook and shot his girlfriend on October 16, 2011 after he found the pair sleeping together. They say Coryell and Cook had been exchanging heated text messages prior to the shooting, and both men had been drinking.
According to witness testimony, Coryell and the girl had recently begun a relationship.
The female survived the attack.
Coryell also received 13 months in jail for aggravated battery.
