GILLETTE, Wyo. — Prosecutors say they will not seek the death penalty in a first-degree murder case against a 21-year-old man charged in a fatal shooting in Gillette on Thanksgiving.

Todd Sindelar is accused of killing Matthew Boyer at Boyer's home.

Deputy County Attorney Ron Wirthwein refused comment, saying it's still an active case.

If convicted of first-degree murder, Sindelar faces up to life in prison without parole.

Sindelar was returned to Campbell County after spending several weeks in a South Dakota jail.
