LAS VEGAS (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 21 years to life in a Nevada prison for the slaying of Olympic bronze medal-winning boxer Rhoshii Wells in a Las Vegas apartment courtyard.
Judge J. Charles Thompson sentenced 29-year-old Roger Randolph on Wednesday to 20 years to life for murder with a deadly weapon, plus one to 12 years for discharging a weapon where a person might be endangered.
Wells was 31 when he was shot in August 2008 while walking with his 4-year-old son through an apartment complex near downtown.
Authorities say Wells may have had a dispute with Randolph over a dice game.
Wells represented the US as a middleweight at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.
Randolph was convicted by a Clark County jury in February.
