Denver: Man gets 45 years in prison for party slaying

DENVER, Colorado – A 20-year-old who killed a man because he told people at a party to quiet down has been sentenced to 45 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Ruben Sotelo-Sianez will also pay nearly $10,000 in restitution for the shooting death of 39-year-old Miguel Velasquez in November 2008. Sotelo-Sianez was convicted last year of second-degree murder. He was sentenced Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Sotelo-Sianez shot Velasquez after he told neighbors at the apartment complex where he lived to quiet down. Police say Velasquez was chased before he was shot.
