MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to life in prison after he killed a man who he mistakenly assumed was a police informant.

Adrien Stillwell was convicted earlier this month in the shooting death of Michael Pittman, another resident of Manchester. The prosecution says the case involved “the execution of a completely innocent victim.”

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2qq5yVP ) Stillwell thought Pittman was a police informant, but authorities say Pittman never provided any information to police.

A victim’s advocate read a statement from Pittman’s wife during sentencing, saying that the wife hopes Stillwell rots in jail for the rest of his life.
