LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A North Little Rock man accused of fatally shooting a driver during a road-rage confrontation has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Chris Aaron Schnarr was convicted Wednesday of manslaughter for the May 2013 shooting death of 45-year-old Arista Lee Aldridge Jr. in downtown Little Rock.

Prosecutors told jurors that Schnarr killed Aldridge, who was unarmed, in the middle of the day on a city street because the two had argued.

But Schnarr’s defense attorney, Jeff Rosenzweig, argued that Aldridge nearly caused a collision with Schnarr’s car, then chased Schnarr down to confront him. Rosenzweig says he plans to appeal the conviction.

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette , Schnarr must serve at least six months in prison before he’s eligible for parole.
