LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - A judge has reduced the prison sentence of a 22-year-old Casper man involved in the death of a University of Wyoming student during an off-campus fight in 2014.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (http://bit.ly/1TRwzva ) that Dalton Williams was originally sentenced to three to five years in prison for voluntary manslaughter for causing the death of Joseph McGowan, of Lander.

At the time, District Court Judge Jeffrey Donnell said Williams would be eligible for a sentencing re-evaluation if he successfully completed the boot camp program.

In an order filed Wednesday, Donnell determined Williams had made “adequate progress” toward rehabilitation and suspended the remainder of his prison sentence.

Donnell ordered Williams to be placed on three years of supervised probation from the date of his boot camp graduation, scheduled for May 25.
