A 30-year-old D.C. man was sentenced to 13 years behind bars Thursday for shooting and killing a man with an assault rifle in 2008.

A D.C. Superior Court judge sentenced John Youngbey for killing 19-year-old Robert Mallory. Youngbey had previously pleaded guilty to a second degree murder charge in connection with the slaying.

Authorities said Youngbey shot and killed the victim on July 16, 2008 in the 1500 block of F Street northeast after an argument.
