    Prosecutors say a 71-year-old Texas man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for killing another man in a dispute over a handicap parking space.

    William Anthony Hall was sentenced Wednesday following his conviction for the 2017 fatal shooting of 67-year-old attorney James Garza in a Houston post office parking lot.

    Prosecutors said Hall confronted Garza about using a space reserved for people with disabilities without a handicapped sticker.

    Hall was licensed to carry a concealed gun and told police he shot Garza in the chest after the confrontation became physical. Prosecutors said a bullet hole in an envelope Garza was holding showed his hands were at his chest, not swinging at Hall.
