LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man will spend 30 years behind bars for killing a man and leaving his body in a car at a local park.

Na'Shawn Mills was sentenced today for the murder of Brandon Shackelford. In 2013, Shackelford was shot and killed and left in a car at Cox Park.

Police say Mills also tried to set the car on fire.

"My family has been traumatized enough and we're just glad that closure has been put today," said Jesse Shackelford Jr., the victim's father. "And Mr. Mills is going to serve his time."

Mills will be eligible for parole after 20 years.
