UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - A man who shot his stepfather 18 times, killing him, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

The Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’ Office said in a news release that 30-year-old Antwan James of Upper Marlboro was sentenced Thursday. James was convicted last year of involuntary manslaughter in the death of 46-year-old Joseph Newell.

Prosecutors say in April 2013, Newell, a District of Columbia detective, and James got into an argument about yard work at the family home. Authorities say James shot Newell 18 times at point-blank range.
