PIERCE, Neb. (AP) - A Columbus man accused of killing a Norfolk teenager in 2011 has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Twenty-four-year-old Daniel Hofmann entered the plea in Pierce County court on Thursday. He admitted to shooting his friend, 18-year-old Wesley Kuester, in April 2011. Three other charges were dropped as part of the deal.

Authorities say Hofmann shot Kuester with a shotgun while they were playing with guns after drinking.

Hofmann faces up to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced in December.
