EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a Kentucky man critically injured in a crash while fleeing a southwestern Indiana burglary to 40 years in prison.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports 24-year-old Jeton Hall of Henderson, Ky., was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty last month to burglary resulting in bodily injury, criminal confinement and theft. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss a sentence enhancement that would have added more prison time for committing the crimes as gang activity.

Hall was one of four men arrested after allegedly breaking into the northern Vanderburgh County home of Ira Beumer on Feb. 19, 2012. Beumer is charged with murder, attempted murder and aggravated battery after allegedly ramming his truck into the car of the four fleeing his home, killing one and injuring Hall. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
