Chatman sentenced in 2013 homicide

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton man is headed to prison after being sentenced for a September 2013 murder.

John Chatman was formally sentenced Monday in the shooting death of Arthur Pekah. A judge ordered him to serve a total of 50 years. Chatman was found guilty in February of fatally shooting Pekah in the back as he drove through a Lawton neighborhood.

Chatman was formally charged with murder in the second-degree, assault and battery with a deadly weapon, assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless conduct with a firearm and possession of a firearm after former felony conviction. A judge ordered all five felony counts against Chatman to run consecutively.

Chatman's attorney says he will appeal the sentence.
