VERNAL, Utah (AP) - A 24-year-old man has been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for his role in a June 2011 shooting in eastern Utah that left one man dead and another seriously injured.

Bruce Silva pleaded guilty Wednesday in Vernal to murder and aggravated assault. Seven other charges are being dismissed as part of a plea deal.

Prosecutors say Silva was at a home in Lapoint and became upset that someone broke his car window. He left and returned with a group of people carrying baseball bats.

Authorities say Silva fired the shots that left 25-year-old James Carey dead and 34-year-old Jared Hurley wounded.

The six others, including three of Silva's brothers, have been implicated in the crime and are set to appear in court in coming months.
