He had pleaded guilty to the charges of murdering Kuchibhotla at a bar in Olathe on February 22, 2017.
As part of Purinton's plea, he got a maximum sentence on each count that will run consecutive to each other and to any sentence that may be imposed in his federal case. Madasani later said the two close friends met regularly at the bar.
He was charged with first-degree murder of Kuchibhotla, 32, and two counts of attempted first-degree murder in the shootings of his friend, Alok Madasani, and a bystander, who chased Purinton after he fled the Austin's Bar and Grill in Olathe city on 22 February previous year.
He returned a short time later and unleashed a fusillade of 9mm bullets that killed Kuchibhotla. His friend Alok Madasani, also Indian, was injured along with a bystander, Ian Grillot, who tried to intervene.
With no possibility of parole for 50 years in the life sentence, Purinton will spend the rest of his life behind bars, unless the U.S. Attorney's office decides to seek the death penalty against him.
He also faces federal charges of hate crime, to which he had earlier pleaded "not guilty" but changed his plea subsequently.
