Prosecutors won't ask for death penalty in Gillette murder case


GILLETTE, Wyoming — 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.

The Gillette News Record reports ( ) 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.
