BLYTHEVILLE, AR (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 22 years in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree murder in connection with a fatal shooting in July.

The Blytheville Courier News reported in Friday's editions that Alan Stewart entered the plea this week in Mississippi County Circuit Court.

Authorities say Chris Marshall came into the Dodge Store in Blytheville on July 7 bleeding and asking for help.

He had been shot elsewhere then drove himself to the store. Marshall was taken to Great River Medical Center where he died a short time later.

Stewart was taken into custody on July 14.

His attorney, Paul Ford, was out of the office on Friday and didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
