JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A western Missouri man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing his neighbor following a feud.

Attorney General Chris Koster’s office handled prosecution of 70-year-old Lonny Leroy Mays of Clinton. Koster said Wednesday that Judge Mark Pilley also sentenced May to 15 years for armed criminal action.

The sentences will be served at the same time.

Mays’ attorney did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press.

A jury in September found May guilty of first-degree murder in the 2012 death or 66-year-old Rudy Romdall, Mays’ neighbor on Truman Lake.

Romdall’s body was found March 26, 2012, in his truck near the Henry County town of Tightwad. Police said at the time that the two men had been involved in a disturbance earlier in the day.
