KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City teenager man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing a 55-year-old man.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/wkmpKS) that 19-year-old Jerrim Johnson was convicted last month on charges of second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting death last year of Earthy Huff.

Police identified Johnson as a suspect from a gang marking written in the snow nearby.

Johnson told police he did not kill Huff.
