MANHATTAN, KAN. — A former Fort Riley soldier has been sentenced to life in prison in the death of a Kansas National Guard member outside a Manhattan motorcycle club.

KMAN reports that Daniel Parker, of Junction City, apologized before he was sentenced Monday in Riley County District Court for first-degree murder and criminal discharge of a firearm.

Parker was accused of opening fire on the “Assassin Street Rydaz” clubhouse as the victim, 21-year-old Frederick Beverly, manned the gate for a party early on New Year’s Day, 2012. Prosecutors said Parker had argued earlier with a club member.

The prosecution said it was fortunate more people weren’t injured, noting that Parker fired more than 20 rounds. Beverly’s sister, Sharlene Beverly, said she had endured sleepless nights and that Parker “took a good person.”
