A Wichita man who was acquitted of first-degree murder charges in the shooting death of a man in his North Broadway apartment was sentenced Wednesday to more than four years in prison for trying to rob him.

Christopher M. Brown, 30, stood trial in August for first-degree murder and aggravated robbery for his role in the July 9, 2012, shooting death of Ronald Wilson at the Interdale Apartments, 916 N. Broadway. The jury convicted Brown of attempted aggravated robbery but was unable to reach a verdict on the murder charge. A second jury acquitted Brown of the murder charge in December.

District Judge William Woolley, who presided at both trials, sentenced Brown to 51 months in prison – the maximum – on the attempted robbery charge.
