WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) - A man who killed his camping partner last September in the Blue Mountains has been sentenced in Walla Walla to two years in prison.

The Walla Walla Union-Bulletin reports Robert L. Nelson of Walla Walla pleaded guilty last month to second-degree manslaughter and was sentenced Monday in superior court.

He shot Kenneth L. Brooks of Kennewick at a campsite 20 miles east of Walla Walla where the two men had been drinking.
