Raymond Shaw, 59, was convicted of murder on Friday. He shot and killed Jonathan Dixson last year when he got angry because a group of kids would not leave his home. On Monday the jury sentenced Shaw to 15 years in prison, although the state had asked for 25 years.

Shaw must serve 7 ½ years before he's eligible for parole.
