WORLAND, Wyo. (AP) - A Worland man charged with the shooting death of his father-in-law has been sentenced to at least eight years in prison.

Northern Wyoming Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1Tr0UOe ) that Anthony Hair was sentenced Wednesday to eight to 10 years in prison. He had been found guilty of manslaughter and reckless endangerment in the April 2015 death of 58-year-old Jamye Don SoRelle.

Washakie County authorities had said SoRelle died after exchanging gunfire with Haire, his step daughter’s husband, near their shared driveway.

Investigators say Haire told them he shot SoRelle in self-defense during an argument.

Haire apologized in court Wednesday to the victim’s family, saying he had acted in fear and responded how he felt was appropriate in the case.
