Madison, NE (AP) - A northeast Nebraska man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for a 2012 shooting that left another man paralyzed.

The Norfolk Daily News reports 29-year-old Jordan Beehn was sentenced Friday for first-degree assault and tampering with a witness.

Prosecutors say Beehn shot Jorge Alberto Zepeda-Flores in the face after he tried to break up a fight between Beehn's wife and another woman outside a Norfolk bar.

Beehn later encouraged his wife in a letter from jail to convince witnesses to change their stories.

Zepeda-Flores is now confined to a wheelchair, and his family members must care for him.
