Man sentenced for 2017 killing of Lincoln man

Dominic Aguirre

A man was sentenced to 60-80 years in prison for the killing of a Lincoln man over a drug debt in 2017, court records show.

Dominic Aguirre was sentenced on Wednesday after he entered a guilty plea for 1st-degree assault and attempted kidnapping in early January.

In exchange for the plea, prosecutors amended the charges from Second Degree Murder.

Investigators learned Aguirre and and Paul Clark had been searching for Phillip Madlock to collect on a debt for illicit narcotics.

Police said Madlock was assaulted at multiple locations in Lincoln, and after he was deceased, his body was transported to a location outside of Lancaster County.

Clark, 36, pleaded no contest to assault and weapons charges in August 2018, and was sentenced to 60-80 years in prison on October 25.

Clark was sentenced to 40-50 years in prison for one count against him, and 20-30 years for the other. The two sentences are to be served consecutively, the court records show.
