HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ A man scheduled to go on trial next week for a Hutchinson shooting death pleaded guilty in the case.
Twenty-one-year-old Isaac Beltran pleaded guilty Thursday to reckless killing 26-year-old Dustin Brooks of Hutchinson as the two men argued. Police say Beltran shot Brooks during a large party at a Hutchinson home. No one else was injured.
The Hutchinson News reports Reno County District Attorney Keith Schroeder said the plea deal likely would result in a 10-year prison sentence for Beltran.
Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 21
