AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - An Augusta County man will spend eight years in prison for killing his son.

In December, a jury found Steven Wayne Glenn guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

Thirty-five-year-old Glenn shot his 13-year-old son Steven Glenn between the eyes at their Spring Hill Road home in April of 2018.

Glenn's attorney argued that it was a tragic accident that occurred as Glenn was setting down the gun.

On Tuesday, June 4, an Augusta County judge upheld the jury's recommended sentence and gave Glenn eight years behind bars.
