A Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole plus 15 to 30 years in the shooting death of a friend.
The (Doylestown) Intelligencer reports that a Bucks County judge imposed the term last week on 38-year-old Nicholas Kovatto of West Rockhill.
Kovatto was convicted in March of first-degree murder in the November 2015 slaying of 32-year-old Eric Kramer, who was shot in the head outside a Richland Township home. He was also convicted of drug and firearms counts.
Prosecutors said Kovatto stood over Kramer as he fired five times and then drank a beer just feet away from the body as he waited for police.
During sentencing, President Judge Jeffrey L. Finley called the slaying "cold" and "remorseless."
