A Lexington man who pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter in the 2010 shooting death of his father has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

A judge handed down the prison term to 20-year-old Verdis Kyle Pennington III in Fayette Circuit Court on Monday.

The younger Pennington was a teenager when he pulled the trigger and shot 50-year-old Verdis K. Pennington Jr in 2010. The coroner says Pennington, Jr. later died at UK Hospital from a gunshot wound to the head.

Pennington says he and his father were arguing before the shooting.
