  • A southeast Kansas man has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison for his role in the death of a Pittsburg man three years ago.
    Forty-one-year-old Charles F. Mitchell of Pittsburg was sentenced Tuesday for in the death of 29-year-old Ian P. Monaghan.
    Mitchell and 33-year-old Amie Lee Ryburn were originally charged with first-degree murder after Monaghan was found shot to death in July 2010 in a field two miles west of Pittsburg.
    The Joplin Globe reports  Ryburn, who was the person who shot Monaghan, pleaded guilty earlier this year to second-degree murder and manufacturing methamphetamine. She was sentenced to more than 25 years in prison.
    Witnesses testified at a preliminary hearing that Ryburn lured Monaghan to the field because she thought he was a confidential informant.
