(AP) -

A Charles City man has been sentenced to up to 50 years in prison for the June shooting death of another man.

The Courier reports that 36-year-old Antoine Williams was sentenced Friday for second-degree murder. Iowa law says he must serve nearly 38 years before he can be released.

Williams was found guilty by a Floyd County jury in October of killing 36-year-old Nathaniel Fleming on June 30 in Charles City.

Police have said Williams shot Fleming, of Mason City, several times before pulling Fleming out of a vehicle and fleeing the scene.

Williams testified that he shot Fleming when he thought Fleming was reaching for a gun.
