NORTH HAVERHILL, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to 13 to 30 years in prison for his role in the killing of a confidential informant for Bethlehem police.

Authorities said Nicholas Skidmore plotted with two others to kill 22-year-old Robert Pierog in May 2016 in Littleton.

The Caledonian-Record reports Skidmore pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in 2017. The agreement was that he would not be sentenced until the cases of Quade Kadle and Damion Yeargle were resolved.

Yeargle, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and conspiracy, was sentenced to at least 36 years in prison. Kadle’s serving a 13-to-30-year sentence.

Skidmore was sentenced Thursday in Grafton County Superior Court. With credit for time served and his cooperation with police, he could be released after five years.
