73 year old gets life term in old grudge killing

Madison, Jun 15: A 73-year-old U.S. man has been sentenced to life in prison for shooting a former classmate over a locker room incident in school more than five decades ago.






Carl Ericsson was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty but mentally ill to second-degree murder.

Norman Johnson was shot twice in the face Jan. 31.

A prosecutor says a jockstrap put over Ericsson's head more than 50 years ago led him to shoot his old classmate.

Johnson's daughter, Beth Ribstein, says Ericsson was always jealous of her father's success.
