LANCASTER, South Carolina — A judge has sentenced a 19-year-old Lancaster man to 30 years in prison for the shooting death of his teenage girlfriend.

Media outlets report that Tanner Crolley pleaded guilty to murder Friday as part of a plea deal.

Prosecutors say Crolley and 18-year-old Sierra Landry had been dating before she was killed in December 2013. They were both charged with a burglary at the home of Landry's parents.

Crolley told deputies he left Landry in a yard after the shooting because he figured she was dead. He told investigators that she told him she didn't want to be in a relationship any more.

Landry's parents are pushing for a law in South Carolina to allow minors to ask for court-ordered protection and include domestic violence education in schools.
