CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

A Cape Girardeau man will spend 50 years in prison in connection with a shooting last year.

A judge gave Seth Summers 25 years on an assault charge and another 25 years on a charge of armed criminal action.

A jury convicted him in August.

Authorities say Summers and another suspect took a man to a rural part of Cape Girardeau County and shot him in the head.

The victim recovered.

That other suspect is Jimmy Bell. He is already serving a 50 year prison sentence.
