Indiana man pleads guilty in killing teen

SHELBYVILLE -

A central Indiana man who shot and killed a Michigan teenager invited to play paintball on his property has pleaded guilty to criminal recklessness in the attack.

Shelby County Prosecutor Kent Apsley tells the Daily Journal that 42-year-old Jason Bagley's plea agreement calls for the Shelbyville man to serve no more than four years in prison for the December 2011 shooting. He'll be sentenced June 10.

Investigators said Bagley shot and killed Brandon J. Spangler, a 17-year-old from Flushing, Michigan, who was preparing to play paintball on a wooded part of Bagley's rural property with three siblings and his father.

Bagley gave the family permission to play paintball on his property, but he said he didn't know they were there and he thought he was shooting at coyotes.
