A Garden City man convicted of a Colby murder was sentenced today to life in prison.

William Andrew Shank, 25, was sentenced in Thomas County District Court by Judge Glenn Schiffner to life in prison for first degree pre-meditated murder, 59 months for aggravated arson and 32 months for aggravated burglary. All sentences will run consecutive to each other.
