An 18-year-old Jacksonville man was sentenced to 45 years in  prison Friday in a fatal shooting that ended a fight over a $10 dispute.

Dequan Taji Dodson was convicted in November of second-degree  murder in the January 2011 slaying of 24-year-old B. Barrington Jevon Nickerson  II.

Witnesses testified that Dodson was on the losing end of a fight  that began as the two shot dice under a carport of a vacant house. They said Dodson drew a .45-caliber pistol and  opened fire, hitting Nickerson as he began to run away.

The defense had always maintained that Dodson was in a daze and  that Nickerson was struck in his side, not his back.

Circuit Judge Mark Hulsey applied a minimum of 30 years in his  sentencing of Dodson.
