VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A 22-year-old learned his fate following a deadly shooting.

That shooting happened at International Village Apartments in Vigo County last November.

On Wednesday, Tristin Spencer was sentenced to 10-years of work release.

Last month, Spencer entered a guilty plea to voluntary manslaughter.

As a result, the state dismissed the murder charge.

Police say there was a verbal argument between Robert James Archer and Spencer.
