A second man who pleaded guilty in the beating death of a Detroit firefighter was sentenced to a minimum of 10 years in prison for his role in the crime. 

David Madrigal, the beloved Detroit firefighter, was found beaten to death in his home, nearly one year ago on December 21, 2015. 

Investigators say he was targeted by three people for quick cash. Three people were behind the home break-in, robbery and homicide, according to police.

Today, Christian Rasnick was sentenced to 10-30 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to second degree murder this fall.

On Wednesday, Timmy Soto was sentenced to a minimum of 39 years in prison.

The third defendant in this case, Nicole O'Neill, is heading to a jury trial expected in the spring.
