FREMONT, Neb. (AP) - A Dodge County man who fatally shot his daughter’s former boyfriend has been convicted of manslaughter.

Authorities say the man had confronted 22-year-old Tyler Childs, of Fremont, in July when Childs tried to visit his former girlfriend at her parents’ home two miles northeast of Fremont.

Forty-three-year-old Walter Campo is scheduled to be sentenced March 14. The Fremont Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1kS3jaA ) that Campo pleaded no contest Thursday and was found guilty of manslaughter after prosecutors dropped a felony weapons charge.

Campo faces from one to 20 years in prison.
