Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - A man charged in a fatal drug-related shooting in Cheyenne in 2012 could be sentenced to between four and five years under a deal with prosecutors.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that Brian M. Sears appeared in court Monday to plead guilty to reckless endangerment and felony possession of marijuana. He had earlier pleaded not guilty to attempted second-degree murder but that charge was dropped.

Sears is accused of shooting and killing 22-year-old Connor Tarr after Tarr and a man named Cameron Scott stabbed him during a struggle in December 2012. Police say Sears then shot at Scott's car as the man was trying to get away.

A judge will decide later whether to agree to the four to five year sentence recommended by prosecutors.
