TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- One of nine defendants in the shooting death of a Topeka woman during a botched robbery has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison.

Nineteen-year-old Daquan Wilkins was sentenced Monday in Shawnee County District Court for involuntary manslaughter in Natalie Gibson's killing, aggravated battery in the wounding of Lori Allison and attempted robbery. The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/13qQJRT ) reports that he also was sentenced to six months for an attempted auto burglary.

Prosecutors said the women were shot in 2011 when they returned home as the suspects were planning to break into their house to steal a television.

Although Wilkins wasn't the gunman, Judge David Debenham said he bears some responsibility for the crimes.

Prosecutors said the gunman was 19-year-old Jimmy Netherland. He's serving a life sentence.
