A Madison, Neb. man is sentenced for his involvement in a Norfolk shooting

Posted:

MADISON, Neb. (KTIV/US92) - A Madison man has been sentenced to 50-years in prison for his involvement in a Norfolk shooting.

29-year-old Jordan Beehn was handed that sentence in Madison County District Court Friday morning, after pleading no contest to felony assault and witness tampering related to the shooting of Jorge Zepeda-Flores outside of a Norfolk night club in November of 2012.

Beehn spoke in court Friday, telling Judge Mark Johnson that he was truly sorry for what happened and saying that the gun went off accidentally during a scuffle involving his wife. The shot hit Zepeda-Flores in the face, paralyzing him.

Madison County Attorney Joe Smith cited the pre-sentence investigation in his deposition, which he said contained "hundreds of pages of misery," detailing how Zepeda-Flores is unable to hold his child that was born after the shooting happened and how he's been troubled with suicidal thoughts.

Judge Johnson said in his decision that he believed Beehn acted with intent to kill Zepeda-Flores and added that Beehn was the one that introduced a deadly weapon to a non-life threatening situation.

Zepeda-Flores was in the courtroom with his family as was the family of Jordan Beehn.

Beehn will be eligible for release from prison in 25-years due to Nebraska's good time law.
