GONZALES - A 28-year-old man has received a 12-year prison sentence in the shooting death of a Donaldsonville man.
    
Shawn Broom, also of Donaldsonville, pleaded guilty April 26 to manslaughter in the fatal shooting of 21-year-old Michael Stewart on the porch of Donaldsonville home more than a year ago.
    
Broom had been set for trial April 26 and faced a second-degree murder charge and a possible life sentence before his plea to the reduced charge of manslaughter that same day.
    
Judge Thomas Kliebert Jr. gave Broom a 20-year sentence Monday and suspended eight years. Broom also faces five years of supervised probation after his release from prison.
