Shooter in Sheridan home invasion killing faces 35 years in prison before possible parole


SHERIDAN, Wyoming — A Sheridan judge has sentenced a man convicted of killing a local homeowner to serve at least 35 years before he would be eligible for parole.

The Sheridan Press reports ( ) that District Judge John Fenn on Thursday resentenced Dharminder Vir Sen.

Sen was convicted in the 2009 home-invasion killing of Robert Ernst of Sheridan.

Sen was 15 at the time of the killing and originally received life without parole. The Wyoming Supreme ordered him resentenced because of federal court rulings affecting life sentences for juvenile offenders.

Fenn on Thursday sentenced Sen to life in prison for murder and 20 to 25 years for conspiracy to be served concurrently. He also sentenced Sen to an additional 10-25 years for aggravated burglary. He would be eligible for parole after 35 years.
