Man Gets Life Sentence For Fatal Okla. Shooting

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) - A Washington County judge has sentenced a Bartlesville man to life in prison with the possibility of parole for a fatal shooting on Dec. 31.

Associate District Judge Russell Vaclaw told Kyle Eulitt on Monday his decision to shoot a gun that night left behind many victims. 

A jury convicted Eulitt in September in the death of 22-year-old Ronald Watts, who was wounded at a Bartlesville apartment complex. According to the Tulsa World Eulitt's attorney, Jim Conatser, asked for a 25-year prison term, but the judge followed the jury's recommendation. 

Eulitt told Watts' family in court that he was sorry for what happened. 

The 24-year-old will have to serve at least 38 years of his prison term before he is eligible for parole.
