That is the headline with an Associated Press report.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — A soldier in North Carolina has been given a two-year prison sentence after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of a fellow Fort Bragg paratrooper.

The Fayetteville Observer reported that Sgt. Justin A. Boyle also was convicted of conspiracy in the July 2008 death of Pfc. Luke Brown of Fredericksburg, Va., whose family told the jury they have forgiven Boyle and asked that he not be punished.
