READING, Pa. -

A man will serve up to two decades behind bars for the killing of another man outside a bar in Reading nearly 11 years ago.

Eric DeBooth pleaded no contest Monday to 3rd degree murder. A judge subsequently sentenced him to 9-1/2 to 20 years in state prison followed by 10 years of probation.

DeBooth shot and killed Randel Minggia in the 500 block of Mulberry Street on Oct. 30, 2002.

A grand jury investigation led to DeBooth's arrest in 2011.
