The gunman in a fatal shooting in southeast Wyoming in 2003 has been sentenced to 12 to 18 years in prison.

The Laramie Boomerang reported Friday that 41-year-old Fidel Serrano was sentenced for the death of Ramon Galvan-Morales after previously pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter.

After being brought back to Wyoming in 2018, Serrano was charged with first-degree murder. But prosecutors dropped the charge in exchange for him pleading guilty to manslaughter after his attorneys offered a “sudden heat of passion” defense.

Authorities say Serrano killed Galvan-Morales in Laramie on May 12, 2003, a couple of days after the two had gotten into a fight at a dance in Cheyenne.

The pair had been former co-workers at Rocky Mountain Forest Products on Laramie’s west side. Serrano killed Galvan-Morales in the parking lot of the factory, which closed in 2007.
