FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A 22-year-old man has been sentenced to at least five years in prison in the fatal shooting of another man inside a closed Flint funeral home.

The Flint Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1r0CZ1g ) Michael Albro of Otisville learned his punishment on Tuesday after earlier pleading guilty to manslaughter in the October 2014 killing of 49-year-old Shannon Todd Cook of Grand Blanc. Albro had faced steeper charges including first-degree murder.

Albro stood quietly next to his attorney Patricia Lazzio with his head down. He briefly addressed the court, offering an apology.

Authorities say the shooting happened during an argument and a worker found Cook’s body when he went to check on the former Reigle Funeral Home.

Genesee County property records showed Cook listed as the building’s owner.
