Wichita man sentenced for shooting death of another man


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man has been sentenced to more than 20 years in prison for the shooting death of another man in 2020.

Donovan Harrington, 26, was sentenced to 249 months in prison after earlier being found guilty of voluntary manslaughter and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, television station KAKE reported Wednesday.

Police have said Harrington was in a vehicle with 27-year-old Miguel Tapia and two women in August 2020 when he shot Tapia during an argument. Tapia was later found lying outside the vehicle with gunshot wounds and died at a hospital.

Investigators believe Harrington and the women fled the scene on foot, then flagged down another vehicle to get a ride from the area.

Harrington was on parole for theft and fleeing law enforcement at the time of Tapia's shooting. He also had prior convictions of criminal threat and attempted aggravated robbery, according to Kansas Department of Corrections records.
