KANSAS CITY - A 52-year-old Missouri man is sentenced to more than 55 years for bludgeoning to death a well-known Kansas dog breeder whose body was found several days after he was killed.

Darrell Lee Broxton of Kansas City, Missouri, was sentenced in Wyandotte County District Court on Friday to 667 months for the December 2012 slaying of Peter Belmont.

The 69-year-old victim was killed in his Kansas City, Kansas, home. The retired high school art teacher was nationally known for breeding, raising and showing Afghan hound dogs.

Broxton was convicted in February of intentional second-degree murder, burglary and two counts of theft. Jurors were shown evidence that Broxton was investigated for a similar homicide in 1996 in Ocala, Florida.

Broxton had been paroled in May 2012 after serving time for burglary.
