Lastra will serve five years, 10 months, (70 months) in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Following prison, he will serve three years on supervised release.

U.S. Attorney Deb Gilg announced Lastra's sentencing.

Gilg said on May 30, 2010, Darcey Lee of Lexington was killed in an accidental shooting at her Lexington home.

In June 2010, Lexington police investigators were provided Leeís digital camera, which contained photos of persons handling the same shotgun that had killed her, Gilg said.

Several photos dated May 24, 2010, showed Lastra holding the shotgun.

Lastra also had a prior felony conviction for third-degree assault on a pregnant person from Dawson County in 2009 and California felony convictions for felon in possession of a firearm in 2006 and possession with intent to sell cocaine base in 2004.

Lastra was arrested Aug. 3, on a federal warrant and has been in custody since, Gilg said.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Lexington Police Department and the Nebraska State Patrol, Gilg said.
