A Kansas man convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend in Nebraska was sentenced to life in prison on May 30.

Aldrick Scott was found guilty of first-degree murder in March, more than a year after the disappearance of his ex, Cari Allen, 43, according to reports from KETV, WOWT and KMTV.

Allen vanished in November 2022, the outlets reported, and Scott was initially charged with kidnapping. Police later determined that Scott tracked her location on Snapchat and drove from Topeka, Kan., to her home in Omaha, where he then waited until she arrived before shooting her, KMTV reports.

KETV reported that prosecutors had argued that Allen had been on a date at a restaurant when Scott tracked her location.

"It's that typical thing with regard to domestic violence, cases of control, and if I don't have control or if I can't have you, no one will,” Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said, according to the outlet.

According to her obituary, Allen had one teenage son from a previous marriage.

Scott was sentenced to life in prison plus 45 to 60 years in prison, the outlets reported.
