Man sentenced for killing in Sheridan

SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - A man will spend at least 27 years in prison following his guilty plea to a deadly shooting in northern Wyoming.

The Sheridan Press reports Christopher Labuy was sentenced Monday in a Sheridan courtroom after changing his plea to a second-degree murder charge.

Labuy was accused of shooting 47-year-old Eric Kaylor during an argument at a Sheridan apartment complex in January 2018.

Labuy previously claimed that Kaylor pointed a gun at him first before he shot him.

Labuy admitted in court Monday the shooting was not in self-defense.

He apologized to Kaylor's family and his own family in court, saying he must serve the consequences of his actions.
