An Omaha man who said he fatally shot James L. Edwards because he suspected him of beating his brother will have at least 35 years in prison to learn that the law takes a dim view of vigilantism.
Ramone D. Jefferson was given 70 to 90 years in prison Thursday for second-degree murder. Jefferson, 30, will be eligible for parole in 35 years and, under state sentencing guidelines, must be released after 47½ years.
