    A Vermont man has pleaded no contest in the fatal shooting of his grandfather who was hosting a drunken party in 2015.

    Thirty-two-year-old Ryan Bacon accepted a plea deal with a split sentence of eight to 15 years. The Caledonian-Record reports the deal comes two weeks before Bacon was scheduled to face a jury trial on charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter.

    Police say Bacon shot Lou-Ron Schneider after an argument at Schneider's home.

    Orleans County State's Attorney Jennifer Barrett says the murder charge will be dismissed at sentencing.
