RENO, NV - A Reno man who killed his friend will be sentenced in May after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter Tuesday.

Matthew Mahaffey shot Michael Boyle while picking Boyle up in a truck near Aces ballpark in the summer of 2011. Mahaffey says he fired his gun when Boyle opened the truck door to get in, thinking someone was trying to break in.

Mahaffey faces anything between probation and 20 years in prison plus a $10,000 fine.
