A Frederick County teen-ager who shot and killed a 13-year-old West Virginia boy in September of last year was sentenced to five years in prison.

A Frederick County judge Thursday suspended half of 18-year-old Robert Luttrell Junior's 10-year sentence. Luttrell also will serve four years of supervised probation after being released.

Luttrell entered an Alford plea to a charge of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Travis Hott. An Alford plea means Luttrell admitted the state had enough evidence to convict him.

Prosecutor Larry Ambrogi says Hott and Luttrell were watching television at Luttrell's home when the two teens got into an argument over what channel to watch. Luttrell shot Hott in the chest with a nine-millimeter handgun.
