KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - A southern Oregon prosecutor says a 29-year-old man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for fatally shooting a man and wounding a woman on Easter Sunday 2013 in Klamath Falls.

Klamath County District Attorney Rob Patridge said Leland Thomas Nicholson, Jr. was sentenced Thursday. Nicholson pleaded no contest to first-degree manslaughter and attempted aggravated murder.

Patridge says Nicholson fatally shot Terry Entriken and wounded Vanessa Alexander on March 31, 2013.

Witnesses said they saw three people arguing in Klamath Falls, then heard gunshots. Entriken was shot in the back of the head and Alexander was shot in the face. She has since recovered.

Nicholson was later arrested in Dos Palos, California.
