An Apex man has been sentenced to between 32 and 40 years in prison for his role in the murder of a high school classmate.

Aadil Khan, 19, was sentenced Monday in Wake County Superior Court for participating in the 2008 slaying of Matthew Silliman.

Silliman was found zipped into a sleeping bag, with his hands and feet bound with plastic zip ties and a bag over his head.

Ryan Hare, 19, was convicted in September of first-degree murder and murder conspiracy in Silliman's killing.

Allegra Dahlquist, 19, is also scheduled to be sentenced Monday in connection with the murder.

    Time to bring back public hangings. Matthew does not get to come back after 32 to 40 years, why should his killer ever be allowed to walk free again.

    I can't even imagine the horror of that kind of death. As a parent, I would be devistated if my child died in such a way. How can people be so evil?
