PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh man was sentenced to five to 10 years in prison for the accidental shooting death of a woman in the city’s Marshall-Shadeland section.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1JkKtSQ ) 27-year-old Charles Miles entered a plea agreement Wednesday for charges of involuntary manslaughter and illegally possessing a firearm.

Police say Miles accidentally shot 25-year-old Jacquelyn Bush on March 21. Bush was shot in the left buttock, with the bullet severing an artery.

Miles first told officers he didn’t know how Bush got shot, but later admitted it occurred when the two were dancing in the home’s basement. He said the gun discharged when he went to move it from a table.

Bush’s family initially opposed the plea deal, but prosecutors say they started coming around to the idea last week.
