BEULAH, North Dakota — A man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for his role in a 2012 drug-fueled shooting in Beulah that left one man dead and another injured.

Twenty-seven-year-old Cody Borner pleaded guilty to felony terrorizing and aggravated assault charges Tuesday in an agreement with prosecutors.

Borner and 31-year-old co-defendant Richard Whitman in June 2012 were convicted of two counts of conspiracy to commit murder in the January 2012 shooting in a Beulah apartment that killed Michael Padilla and wounded his brother, Timothy Padilla. The North Dakota Supreme Court later overturned the convictions because of improper charging documents but said the men could be charged again.

Whitman last November pleaded guilty to a murder charge and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
