Man sentenced in UC student's death

        The second of two men convicted of kidnapping and killing a University of Cincinnati student last summer will spend at least the next 18 years in prison.

        David McGee, 17, was sentenced to 18 years to life Monday for his part in the murder of David Peet, a 19-year-old UC student kidnapped from a Finneytown Taco Bell.

        Mr. McGee, as part of a deal with prosecutors, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of murder and agreed to testify against his accomplice, Michael Price, the trigger man in the shooting death.

        Mr. Price, who pleaded guilty to killing Mr. Peet, was sentenced last month to life in prison.

        On Aug. 14, Mr. McGee, of Finneytown, and Mr. Price, 20, of Winton Terrace, met Mr. Peet in the parking lot of the restaurant at Galbraith and Winton roads.

        They told the Springfield Township resident they were stranded and looking for a ride. When Mr. Peet agreed to help them, Mr. Price drew a handgun and forced the UC student into the trunk of his car.

        Driving to a no-outlet street, Mr. Price shot Mr. Peet in the head. The car was set ablaze.

        Mr. McGee won't be eligible for parole until 2019.
