October 21, 2021
GILLETTE — A Gillette man who shot and killed his friend in 2020 will serve three to ten years in prison.
Joshua Lewis Campbell, 22, was charged in the death of 21-year-old Tanner Miller on June 2, 2020. In October 2020, Campbell pleaded not guilty, but in June, he changed his plea to no contest to one count of manslaughter.
On Thursday, District Judge Thomas W. Rumpke went along with the prosecution’s recommended sentence of three to 10 years in prison.
Campbell’s defense attorney, Steven Titus, asked Rumpke to suspend the prison sentence in favor of five years of probation.
