Lamount A. Ford was sentenced to 155 months in prison for the killing last July of Nola Pierce in Kansas City, Kan.

A Kansas City, Kan., teenager was sentenced Thursday to 12 years and 11 months in prison for killing a woman last summer.

Lamount A. Ford, 16, was sentenced in Wyandotte County District Court where he pleaded guilty in May to a charge of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Nola Pierce.

He killed Pierce, 28, last July 25 outside a residence in the 1200 block of Everett Avenue.

Ford, who was 15 at the time, initially was charged as a juvenile but a judge ordered him to be tried as an adult.
