Denton teen pleads guilty in friend's accidental death; gets 5 years' probation

Posted: Updated:

A teenager pleaded guilty in Montague County Court on Monday to criminally negligent homicide in the shooting death of his best friend.

As a result, Michael Underwood, 18, was sentenced to five years' probation.

If he violates that probation, he will automatically spend two years in jail.

Underwood and his friend Nathan Maki were hunting near Bowie over Labor Day weekend when police say Underwood accidentally shot Maki with a rifle.

The sheriff says beer cans were found at the camp site.

Underwood will undergo a gun safety class and finish high school.

At the request of his mother, he also has to give a speech at a gun safety class.
