    JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to a murder charge in the shooting death of a Jonesboro businessman has been sentenced to 35 years in prison.

    Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington told KAIT (http://bit.ly/RXUzOB ) that Terrance Odell Barker was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty in May in the shooting death of Marc Despain.

    Prosecutors have said they believe Barker was the triggerman in the August, 2011, shooting.

    Co-defendant Johnny Hubbard was sentenced to 18 years in prison in June after pleading guilty in the case.

    Despain's wife and her father also face murder charges in the case. The wife had reported finding Despain shot to death in their home.
