An Oberlin man was sentenced Monday to more than 17 years in prison for fatally shooting another man and wounding a woman as the couple slept in the northwest Kansas town.

Dylan R. Coryell, 25, was sentenced to 212 months for intentional second-degree murder and to 13 months for aggravated battery, according to the Kansas Attorney General’s Office. Judge Preston ordered the two sentences to run consecutively.

Coryell was convicted by a Decatur County jury in March in a case that involved a love triangle. Coryell was charged with shooting Corey Cook, 22, also of Oberlin, and Sarah Campbell as they slept on the morning of Oct. 16, 2011, according to court records.

Cook died of a shotgun wound to the head following a night of partying, beer-drinking, beer games, threats of fist fights and cellphone text messages, according to testimony during the trial.
