MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - One of three men charged with killing a grandmother in Sheffield has been sentenced to 23 to 50 years in prison.

Michael Norrie had pleaded guilty in July to pulling the trigger after holding Mary “Pat” O’Hagan at gunpoint while two other men ransacked her house in September 2010.

WPTZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1XDq7gt ) reports that Norrie was sentenced Thursday.

Had he been found guilty at trial, the 25-year-old could have been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

A second defendant, 28-year-old Richard Fletcher, got 15 years in prison after pleading guilty and agreeing to testify against the other two men.

Norrie’s attorney had said previously that his client would not testify against the last defendant, 34-year-old Keith Baird, as part of the plea bargain.
