Man sentenced for role in beating death of man in Lincoln
A man has been sentenced to decades in prison for his role in the beating death of a man in Lincoln.
In front of a packed court room, District Judge Kevin McManaman on Wednesday sentenced Dominic Aguirre on counts of first-degree assault and attempted kidnapping.
Aguirre, along with Paul Clark, was arrested on second-degree murder charges in connection to the death of Phillip Madlock.
Investigators learned Aguirre and Clark had been searching for Madlock to collect on a debt for illicit narcotics.
Officials said Madlock was assaulted at multiple locations in Lincoln, and his body transported to a location outside of Lancaster County.
Aguirre was sentenced to 40-50 years for the first count, and 20-30 years for the second.
Aguirre pleaded guilty to the charges last month, after being charged originally with second-degree murder.
Clark also took a plea deal and was sentenced to 60-80 years for his role in the crime.
