Sioux City man sentenced to life after murder conviction

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Sioux City man has been sentenced to life in prison for the shooting death of another man in January.

Samuel Montez Wright was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Zachary Coooper in August.

District Court Judge Gary Wenell handed down the sentence of life in prison without parole.

Wright has maintained his innocence, despite the conviction. In court on Friday, he told the victim's family that he was sorry for their loss but says he will continue to maintain his innocence.
