WAHPETON (AP) — Jurors have convicted a Wyndmere man of manslaughter in a fatal St. Patrick’s Day bar shooting.

Forty-six-year-old Steven Rowland was acquitted Thursday on more serious charges of murder and attempted murder. Defense attorney Richard Edinger said his client was immediately sentenced to the maximum 10 years in prison following the verdict.  

Gordon Vosberg died after being shot in the chest following a fight the Four Corners Motel and Lounge in Wyndmere last March.

Rowland didn’t contest that he walked into the bar with a loaded shotgun, but testified that he didn’t intend to kill Vosberg.

Gordon Vosberg’s daughter, Nicole Vosberg, says that if Rowland’s testimony was true, then she is satisfied with the sentence.
