NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - A southwest Florida man has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for his part in a fatal robbery.

As part of a deal with Collier County prosecutors, 24-year-old Schuyler Morris pleaded no contest Friday to manslaughter and attempted robbery. The Naples Daily News (https://goo.gl/Tet16H ) reports that the deal came after jurors for his trial couldn’t reach a unanimous verdict.

Authorities say Morris and another man broke into the East Naples home of 25-year-old Christopher Corey in January 2014 to steal drugs and money. They had planned the robbery with Mallory McCann, who Corey had invited to his home.

When the two men broke in, authorities say Corey fought back and was shot.

McCann is facing up to 20 years in prison as part of her plea deal. The other suspect hasn’t been charged.
