Another suspect has been sentenced in connection with the 2015 mistaken-identity shooting of a Salina teen.

Daniel Sims, 20, was sentenced to 44 months for involuntary manslaughter and six months for conspiracy to commit aggravated battery for his role in the deadly shooting of 17-year-old Allie Saum.

Sims will serve the sentences consecutively. He has been in jail since May 2015 and will receive time off of his sentence for time served.

Defendants Macio Palacio and Stephen Gentry have been sentenced in the case. Two other defendants, Jerome Forbes and Andrew Woodring, have both entered no contest pleas in the case.

Saum was shot and killed in May of 2015 while riding in a truck. The truck was thought to have been involved in an earlier altercation. Saum was the passenger.
