GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) - A Josephine County man has been sentenced to life in prison for shooting his neighbor in a long-running feud.

The sentence imposed Thursday in Grants Pass sets a minimum of 25 years before 65-year-old Donald Easley of Kerby can be considered for release from prison.

In a rambling statement in court, Easley repeatedly proclaimed his innocence in the September 2013 shooting of Laron Estes, leading Judge Pat Wolke (WOL-kee) to note that he was blaming everyone but himself.

In 2009, Easley had shot and killed another man who lived on the same property. That case was ruled self-defense.
