November 26, 2013 • State News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A Shiprock man has been sentenced to more than 14 years in federal prison after his conviction on involuntary manslaughter, assault and firearms charges.

Prosecutors say 29-year-old Clay O’Brien Mann also [auth] was ordered Tuesday to pay more than $40,000 in restitution to the victims and serve three years of supervised release after his prison term.

Mann was arrested for allegedly killing a Navajo man and shooting and wounding a couple on the Navajo Nation on July 24, 2010.

Authorities say Mann launched an artillery shell into his neighbor’s property and then shot Ames Joseph Jim, who later died.

Mann also was accused of shooting another man in the face and a woman in the neck.

The case was delayed for years by competency proceedings and Mann was convicted last July.
