The Springfield News-Leader reports 40-year-old Jarrod Sirois was found guilty in December of first-degree murder in the beating death of 45-year-old Robert Pugh.
Judge Calvin Holden sentenced Sirois on Friday after denying his motion for a new trial.

He told police he was only trying to knock Pugh out.
