Jesse James Wilson, suspect in the murder of Stacy Talbot

A judge handed down nearly the maximum sentence to a Lincoln man on Wednesday.

Lancaster County District Judge John Colborn sentenced Jesse Wilson, 33, of Lincoln to 58-70 years behind bars.

Wilson was found guilty of fatally shooting Stacy Talbot, 42, who was a passenger in his vehicle back on October 18, 2018. Talbot was found with a gunshot wound to the chest, laying in the middle of 14th street in the Belmont neighborhood of Lincoln. 

Wilson was found guilty of manslaughter and possession of a firearm to commit a felony.  He had pleaded no contest to those charges. 

He will be credited with 442 days time already served. 

Two other people were arrested in the case; Sherry Thomas and James Howard. 

Thomas, 36, was also in court on Wednesday. She pleaded no contest to being an accessory to a felony and was sentenced to three years. 

Howard is expected to enter a plea later this month.
