WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A Waterloo man has been imprisoned for the death of a 17-year-old girl who was shot in his grandmother’s home about a year ago.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1KQHotv ) that 19-year-old Quaderious Spates had pleaded guilty last month to charges of involuntary manslaughter, trafficking stolen weapons and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He must serve 10 years and pay $150,000 in restitution.

Authorities say Spates and Jazzmine Rembert were in the basement of Spates’ grandmother’s home on Oct. 19 last year when Rembert was shot in her head. Spates told police he’d placed his gun under a pillow. He says he gave Rembert some drugs that night, and she later retrieved the gun. He says they struggled over it until it went off.
