PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - Prosecutors say a man who shot and killed an acquaintance during a robbery outside a northern New Jersey funeral home has been sentenced to 13 years in state prison.

Walter Wybolt of Jersey City had pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in the January 2013 slaying of Conrad Bishop. Authorities have said the 25-year-old West New York man was shot in his car while he waited for his girlfriend, who was attending a wake at the funeral home in Paterson.

The Record (http://bit.ly/1Oklz9b) reports that Bishop and Wybolt knew each other. On the day of the shooting, Wybolt had called Bishop to arrange a meeting outside the funeral home.

Wybolt must serve more than 11 years before he becomes eligible for parole under the sentence imposed Friday.
