9/7/11: Man charged with killing Carson soldier

DENVER — A man convicted of shooting and killing a soldier from Illinois who was stationed in Colorado has been sentenced to life in prison.

Ricky Scott was sentenced Thursday in Denver to a mandatory term of life in prison without parole. He was convicted in December of first-degree murder in the death of Fort Carson-based Sgt. Anthony Silva, of Columbia, Ill.

Prosecutors say Scott met Silva in July 2011 at a bar near the motel where Silva had been staying and shot him. Silva was about to be discharged from the Army and had planned to meet his father at the motel so they could drive back to Illinois.

KUSA-TV in Denver reported that Scott's attorney plans to appeal the conviction.
