DENVER – A Denver man has been sentenced to 414 years in prison for killing a 27-year-old man at a Denver hotel last year.

Scott Shorts, 44, was found guilty earlier this year of second-degree murder, tampering with evidence, attempting to influence a public servant and numerous drug charges, said Lynn Kimbrough of the Denver District Attorney’s Office.

Shorts is a habitual offender and “his multiple convictions were sentenced consecutively for a total of 414 years,” Kimbrough said.

Shorts killed Brandon Sigala on Aug. 28, 2012.Kimbrough said Sigala was with friends when they saw Shorts in an apparent domestic dispute with his wife.

“Sigala and his friends confronted Shorts, and Sigala was shot moments later,” Kimbrough said.
