MADRAS, Ore. (AP) - A 25-year-old man was sentenced to 23 years in prison without parole for the fatal shooting of another man while they were out rabbit hunting near Madras.

Montana Silk Marlatt pleaded guilty to manslaughter and unlawful use of a weapon in the death last April of 19-year old Devon Moschetti.

Police records indicate Marlatt was on several drugs, including meth, and wasn’t responsive when he was arrested.

KTVZ reports (https://bit.ly/Nx5i3o ) Marlatt apologized to the Moschetti family at the hearing Wednesday in the Jefferson County Courthouse.

Under a plea agreement he avoided a murder charge.
