Man gets 2-4 years in Lisbon hunting death
A Lisbon hunter has been sentenced to two to four years after being convicted of negligent homicide in the shooting death of a Massachusetts man in 2011.
Wade Holmes, 52, also had been convicted of reckless conduct with a deadly weapon in the death of Kenneth Brunelle of Marlboro, Mass.
Brunelle was unarmed and walking with his father and brother on opening day of firearm deer season when he was shot once and instantly killed. He had been carrying a video camera to document the hunt.
The Caledonian Record reported Holmes remains free on bail pending an appeal to the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
Holmes’s lawyer said the incident still haunts his client, who is internalizing his grief.
