OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha man has been sentenced to 20 to 24 years in prison for the shooting death of another man during a fight outside a south Omaha home last year.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that 35-year-old Shawn Stewart was sentenced Tuesday in Douglas County District Court for the July 25, 2017, killing of 39-year-old Aristeo Pena-Robles.

Prosecutors say Stewart and Pena-Robles had been on a meth binge when the two argued about damage Stewart allegedly did to Pena-Robles' car the night before. Officials say a fight ensued. Stewart's defense attorney says Pena-Robles and another man were beating Stewart with a metal drapery rod when Stewart pulled out a gun and fired.

Stewart was originally charged with second-degree murder, but pleaded no contest to manslaughter and a weapons count.
