Plea Deal In Deadly 2012 Whitley County Shooting

A man has been sentenced in a deadly shooting in Whitley County.

The News Journal Reports Keith Mason entered a conditional guilty plea in the 2012 death of his former stepfather, Bobby Vanover.

He pleaded guilty to 2nd Degree Manslaughter.

In exchange, prosecutors recommended a seven year prison sentence.

The paper reports another unusual condition of the plea deal.

Prosecutors agreed to allow Mason to appeal the case based on a self-defense law.

If the appeals court sides with Mason, the case could be dismissed.

Mason maintains that he shot Vanover in self defense.
