Wyoming Man Changes Plea in Case of Fatally Shooting Friend
RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming man who shot and killed his friend in Riverton has pleaded no contest to manslaughter.
Keith Sack, 23, of Riverton, entered the plea Thursday during a change-of-plea hearing.
His sentencing date has yet to be scheduled, pending review of a pre-sentence investigation report ordered by the judge in the case.
District court officials say Sack's no-contest plea also will be accepted or rejected pending review of the pre-sentence investigation.
Sack initially was charged with involuntary manslaughter after shooting 19-year-old Levi King on March 12, 2018.
Witnesses at the scene say the shooting was an accident and that Sack was shocked the gun was loaded.
