DUNCAN, Okla. – An Oklahoma man charged in connection to Australian athlete Christopher Lane’s “boredom murder” has been sentenced to prison.

23-year-old Oddesse Barnes was charged with accessory to first-degree murder in April.

According to KSWO, he took a plea deal from prosecutors saying he would testify in court in the murder trials of Chancey Luna and Michael Jones in April.

He was sentenced to serve 12 years in prison, followed by 13 years probation.

He was arrested for the crime last year.
