McLennan County, TX — A man charged with the accidental murder of his cousin has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Bradley Devon Froman, 22, pleaded guilty to manslaughter on Monday.
The incident occurred in January 2009 at a barn near Lacy-Lakeview. Froman was allegedly mishandling a gun when it fired and killed 16-year-old Michael Lynn Hargrove Jr.
A spokeswoman for the McLennan County DA’s office says Froman must serve at least half of his sentence to be eligible for parole consideration.
