RENO — A 65-year-old man will spend the rest of his life behind bars after fatally punching a manager during a dispute at a Nevada casino.

The Reno Gazette-Journal the Washoe County district attorney‘s office says Frederick Douglas Borden was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Borden was convicted in September of first-degree murder for the death of 52-year-old James Bryant, a shift manager at Eldorado Resort Casino. Officials said in a release Thursday that Borden also was convicted of robbery and of committing fraudulent acts concerning gambling.

The case stemmed from a September 2016 incident where officials say Borden lost a bet while playing blackjack.

Chief Judge Scott Freeman also imposed a consecutive sentence for an unrelated grand larceny charge.

Officials say Borden previously was convicted of 11 prior felonies, dating back to 1985.
