PITTSBURGH (AP) – A man has been convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the beating and bludgeoning death of a man during an argument in a western Pennsylvania apartment a year ago.
Prosecutors said Hunter told them he hit the victim in the head with a hammer and then shot him. The victim’s landlord and neighbor found his body.
Investigators said Hunter had been living with Lopata in Elliott.
Prosecutors said he was sentenced Tuesday to eight to 16 years in prison.
