SHIPROCK, N.M. (AP) - A court has upheld a man’s convictions and sentences stemming from the death of a man and the wounding of two other people in a 2010 shooting on the Navajo Nation.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday in the case of Clay O’Brien Mann, who was sentenced to more than 14 years in prison on convictions of involuntary manslaughter and assault.

The victims were attending a small nighttime gathering near Shiprock on July 24, 2010.

Authorities said Mann threw a lit fireworks shell into or near a campfire on his neighbor’s property and then fatally shot Ames Joseph Jim. Another man was shot in the face, and a woman was shot in the neck.
