LAWTON — An Oklahoma man has been sentenced to life in prison for fatally shooting his roommate for leaving hair on a toilet seat.

A local newspaper reports 40-year-old Stevie Gainey was sentenced Wednesday in Comanche County court. He pleaded guilty to first-degree murder by deliberate intent in the February shooting of 21-year-old Julian Humphrey.

Gainey, Humphrey and at least one other person lived in a Lawton apartment with a single bathroom. A woman visiting the residence says she heard Gainey yelling about cleaning the bathroom before the gunshots.

Humphrey was found dead from eight gunshot wounds to the head, neck, arms and back.
