MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee man has been sentenced to 55 years in prison for killing a store clerk while he was under state supervision for two previous armed robberies.  

26-year-old Jason Wandick was found guilty in April of reckless homicide, armed robbery, and illegal firearm possession as a convicted felon.  

Prosecutors said Wandick shot and killed William Melendez Jr. That was after the 44-year-old Family Dollar store clerk agreed to hand over the money in his cash register.  

Prosecutors said the killing would have been avoided, had the state revoked Wandick's supervision last year for committing two thefts and a drug offense during that release period.  

He was under five years of extended supervision after serving a five-year prison term for his previous robberies.
