BUTLER — Brandon Skelton entered a guilty plea to a lesser charge of manslaughter on Wednesday morning, and Judge Gaines McCorquodale sentenced him to 15 years in state prison. He was also ordered to pay restitution in an amount to be determined, to be paid within 36 months of his release from prison.
