HARTFORD, CT (AP) -

A Connecticut man has been sentenced to prison for his role in a 2010 killing.

Connecticut U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly says 25-year-old Keronn Miller was sentenced Tuesday to 17 ½ years behind bars.

The Hartford resident pleaded guilty in December 2014 to charges stemming from the killing of Ian Francis.

Francis was shot multiple times on December 21, 2010, while sitting in his vehicle on Sigourney Street in Hartford. He died from his injuries the following month.

Prosecutors say Miller lured Francis to Sigourney Street, where Dominique Mack was waiting to shoot and kill him.

Mack was convicted in April by a federal jury of conspiring with Miller and others to kill Francis.

Mack is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 1. He faces a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment.
