WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita man has been sentenced to nearly 23 years in prison for the stray-bullet killing of an 8-year-old girl as she slept in a mobile home.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1aK1Z0q ) that 25-year-old Zachary Gaston pleaded guilty last month to reckless second-degree murder for the death of Kimbra Moore in September 2012. Sedgwick County District Judge Joseph Bribiesca gave Gaston the maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months.

Police have said the gunfire followed a nearby dispute between a group of four men and a man in a stolen car. Gaston was accused of shooting at the car while chasing it into the mobile home park.

A bullet pierced the wall of Kimbra's mobile home, killing her. A second shot grazed a neighbor's head.
