Judge Tim Chambers handed down the life sentence for 35-year-old Quinton Moore.
Moore was convicted of shooting 42-year-old Clarence D. Allen multiple times in his head and neck while he slept in his bed at a residence at 1701 E. 30th in Hutchinson.
Under his Miranda rights, Moore admitted to the shooting. Moore had been Allen’s on-again-off-again roommate.
Under the sentence, Moore won’t be eligible for parole for 51 ½ years.
