CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — An Afton man will spend 15 years in prison for his role in a series of shootings along Interstate 64 that injured two people.

Slade Allen Woodson also must pay about $12,000 in restitution.

Albemarle County Circuit Court Judge Cheryl Higgins sentenced the 20-year-old Tuesday to 150 years but suspended 135 years.

Woodson had pleaded guilty in March to 14 felony charges, including malicious wounding and shooting from a motor vehicle. He admitted firing a .22-caliber rifle at cars, houses, utility equipment and a deer in March 2008.

The shootings occurred in the Charlottesville area.

A co-defendant, 17-year-old Brandon Dawson, was placed in the state juvenile system in the fall and is now on parole.
