A Kansas man will spend the rest of his life behind bars for fatally shooting an engineer from India whom he called a “terrorist,” prosecutors said, and for wounding two others.

Adam Purinton, 53, was sentenced to three consecutive sentences of life in prison without the possibility of parole Tuesday morning after pleading guilty in May in Kansas federal court to a three-count indictment, which included hate crime and firearm charges.

Prosecutors said Purinton shot and killed 32-year-old Srinivas Kuchibhotla and wounded his friend Alok Madasani, also from India, while they were at Austins Bar and Grill in Olathe, Kansas, last February.
