ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A man was sentenced Monday for the deadly shooting of a friend in Allentown nearly two years ago.

A judge ordered Hector Rios to spend 2-1/2 to five years in prison for the killing of John Briele, 18, inside a home in the 600 block of North Jordan Street in December 2011.

Rios pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in August. Prosecutors then dropped a homicide charge against him.
