FREMONT, Neb. (AP) - A Fremont man convicted of fatally shooting his daughter’s former boyfriend will be jailed a week each year for four years, to mark the anniversary of the man’s death.

A judge Friday sentenced 43-year-old Walter Campo to serve seven days in jail for the next four years to commemorate the July 24, 2015, killing of 22-year-old Tyler Childs.

Campo also must serve over three years of probation.

Authorities say Campo confronted Childs when he tried to visit his former girlfriend at her parents’ home near Fremont.

Campo pleaded no contest and was found guilty of manslaughter.

The Fremont Tribune reports defense attorneys asked for probation, arguing Childs was drunk at the time of the incident and refused to leave while becoming more aggressive.

Attorneys say Campo had no criminal record.
