A Kansas City man accused in the attempted murder of a Wyandotte County deputy was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison for an unrelated home invasion robbery.

Charles Bowser, 19, is one of three men charged with shooting Deputy Scott Wood during a convenience store robbery last March in Kansas City, Kan.

His co-defendants were found guilty earlier this month of attempted capital murder and are awaiting sentencing. Bowser is set for trial in May in that case.

He was sentenced Friday for a Kansas City, Kan., home invasion robbery in which one victim was pistol-whipped and shots were fired at another in January 2015.

A jury found him guilty in December of aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and criminal possession of a firearm. On Friday, Senior Assistant District Attorney Kristiane Bryant argued for consecutive sentences.

District Judge Dexter Burdette sentenced Bowser to the maximum term on each count and ordered them to run consecutively.
