Man Gets 50-To-Life For Soccer Player's Death

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Southern California man who was convicted of murdering a high school soccer player has been sentenced to 50 years to life in prison.

The Los Angeles Daily News says 24-year-old Jason Schumann was sentenced Tuesday.

The Calabasas man was convicted of first-degree murder last month. Prosecutors say he shot 17-year-old Francisco Rodriguez in January of last year because he thought the El Camino Real High School goalie was romancing his girlfriend.

Prosecutors say Schumann got the woman to knock on the player's door in the San Fernando Valley and lure him into the front yard, where he was shot.

The woman, 20-year-old Elizabeth Ibarra, wasn't charged.

Schumann's attorney says he'll appeal the verdict.
