An ex-soldier from Kentucky has been sentenced to five years in the beating of a homeless man sleeping under an Ohio bridge.
Former Army Pvt. Riley Feller was sentenced Wednesday. He pleaded no contest to felonious assault.
Twenty-five-year-old Feller and three other men were charged in the April 2010 attack on 52-year-old John Johnson in Cincinnati. Johnson was hit with a baseball bat and pipe and suffered facial fractures.
Authorities say the four were drinking and one suggested they "kick somebody's butt."
Feller was based at Fort Knox.
Two ex-soldiers from North Carolina received 90-day sentences Tuesday after pleading guilty to misdemeanor assault.
Feller's attorney says he had sought a similar sentence but doesn't know if Feller will appeal.
The fourth man is to be sentenced Oct. 28 for felonious assault.
