MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A Manchester, N.H., man has been sentenced to 43 years to life in prison for shooting an acquaintance in the head in 2011.
Thirty-two-year-old James Conkle was convicted in April of attempted murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm. According to prosecutors, he shot another man twice in the head on Sept. 17, 2011, in Manchester. The victim was critically injured but survived and was able to testify at Conkle's trial.
At a sentencing hearing Monday, Hillsborough County Superior Court Judge Kenneth Brown imposed the sentence recommended by prosecutors, noting that Conkle showed no remorse and had previously served time for another shooting.
