Kansas sheriff's son gets nearly 10 year in September 2013 fatal shooting death


LINCOLN, Kansas — The Lincoln County Attorney says the son of a Kansas sheriff has been sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison in a 2013 fatal shooting.

A jury in November convicted 34-year-old Scott Weigel of second-degree murder in the September 2013 shooting death of 21-year-old Keith Ancell.

Authorities say the shooting occurred in downtown Lincoln after a night of drinking and socializing. Prosecutors say Ancell was shot when he refused to get in a vehicle with friends because Weigel was pointing a gun at him.

Weigel is the son of Lincoln County Sheriff Mike Weigel.

The Salina Journal ( ) reports Scott Weigel will receive credit for the 490 days he's served in jail since the shooting.
