COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- A 28-year-old man who acknowledged his role in a fatal drug robbery at a downtown Colorado Springs hotel has been sentenced to 65 years in prison.
The Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/18IWIDz ) District Judge Gregory Werner sentenced Michael David Brown, of Delta, on Friday for the March 15 shooting death of 36-year-old James Klinger. Authorities say Klinger was dealing methamphetamine at the Clarion Hotel when a drug heist plotted by Brown and two co-defendants took a violent turn.
A tearful Brown apologized to Klinger's family Friday and said he had been on a meth bender when his gun "went off."
Also charged were 35-year-old Swayde Monroe Jones, of Delta, and 26-year-old Christopher Ryan Dickerson, of Montrose. Each pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery and is set to be sentenced Jan. 9.
