HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) A Wichita man convicted of using his sister as a shield during a standoff with officers at a Hutchinson motel has been sentenced to nearly 28 years in prison.
Twenty-eight-year-old Deron McCoy Jr. was convicted last month on 12 counts, including aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, kidnapping and aggravated child endangerment.
The Hutchinson News reports McCoy was sentenced Friday by Reno County District Judge Tim Chambers.
McCoy was arrested in March 2011 after a five-hour standoff that began when his former girlfriend came to pick up their 7-month-old daughter at a Hutchinson motel room. Authorities testified McCoy held both the baby and his sister while pointing a gun at the sister and the officers trying to arrest him.
