Frostburg student sentenced in slaying

By Associated Press

A former Frostburg State University student has been sentenced to five years in prison for killing a school basketball player and wounding another who had come to his off-campus apartment looking for a fight last April.

Twenty-one-year-old Tyrone Hall of Glen Burnie was sentenced Wednesday in Cumberland for the voluntary manslaughter of 20-year-old Brandon Carroll of Waldorf and second-degree assault on 22-year-old Ellis Hartridge Jr. of Washington.

Hall pleaded guilty last month under an agreement limiting his possible prison time to eight years.

He fired a shotgun at both men in what he claimed was self-defense.

Hartridge testified he wanted to fight Hall after a woman whom both had dated told him that Hall had hit her.
