FRUITLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a 22-year-old western Michigan man to 30 to 65 years in prison for fatally shooting a 21-year-old man and wounding of three others outside a house party in Muskegon County.

Deontay Black-Wickliffe pleaded no-contest in July to second-degree murder, attempted murder and having a firearm in a felony.

Muskegon County Circuit Judge Timothy G. Hicks sentenced Black-Wickliffe on Thursday after rejecting his request to withdraw the plea.

Authorities say Gary Ogreen was killed following a fight with uninvited guests about 3:30 a.m. on Dec. 21, 2013, at his home in Fruitland Township, northwest of Muskegon.
