A Monongalia County man who used a bow and arrow to shoot another man will spend 12 years in prison.
Andrew McIntyre, 20, received that sentence Monday. In Jan. 2012, he was convicted of second-degree murder for shooting and killing Marcus Toothman after a disagreement escalated.
McIntyre was facing up to 40 years behind bars after an arrow shot from a compound bow hit Toothman’s femoral artery.
Toothman had been staying at McIntyre’s house and the two got into an argument before the incident on Oct. 17, 2010.
During the trial last January, McIntyre’s attorney argued his client was acting in self defense.
