Burglar Sentenced

By Sarah Rayner

Tulsa, OK – A 21-year-old man will end up spending 31 years in prison after he was convicted of three felony charges for burglarizing a Tulsa apartment last year. Authorities say Melvin Dan had a gun when he forced his way into an apartment and threatened to kill the three people inside. One of the occupants was armed and shot Dan, who was arrested after being treated at a hospital.
