The judge sentenced 23-year-old Colin Lowrey for the shooting death of 23-year-old Cherish Pincombe last October, while the two were chatting online with someone overseas.

Lowrey's defense attorney, Stephen Stein, says Lowrey apologized at the sentencing hearing and said he never meant to hurt anyone

In August, Lowrey pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter with use of a deadly weapon. He was originally charged with murder in the case.

He told police he didn't think the weapon was loaded when he put the gun to Pincombe's head and pulled the trigger. Lowrey, Pincombe and their friends were at an apartment in Henderson drinking, playing video games and chatting online with random people before the shooting happened.
