BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A 22-year-old Baton Rouge man was sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty in the December 2011 shooting death of another man.

The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1eQMEly ) reports Joshua Edward Dixon was scheduled to stand trial Monday on a second-degree murder charge in the slaying of Jarret Lacey, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter. Police say the killing was the result of an ongoing dispute between the two men.

Dixon’s attorney, Robert Tucker, says Dixon was the victim of bullying.
