Man gets 4 years in shooting death over photos
HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) — A Burnsville man has been sentenced to four years in prison for a deadly shooting that prosecutors say was sparked by an argument over Facebook photos.
Forty-seven-year-old Robert Michael Thomas pleaded guilty last month to second-degree manslaughter in Dakota County court.
Thomas was accused of shooting 38-year-old James Edward Koenig on Jan. 23 in a dispute over Koenig posing shirtless while Thomas' 13-year-old son took photos of him for Facebook.
