A Marine has been found guilty at a court-martial in the shooting that killed another Marine in South Carolina nine months ago.
Daily was sentenced to nearly six years in a military prison.
The April shooting in a barracks at U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort killed Cpl. Tyler Wallingford, 21, of Standish, Maine.
The two Marines served with the Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron as aircraft ordnance technicians.
Naval Criminal Investigative Services told the paper that Daily claimed he pointed a gun at Wallingford and accidentally shot him.
Daily claimed at the time that he was playing a video game with Wallingford and had been drinking.
NCIS said he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and willful discharge of a firearm under circumstances endangering human life, the paper reported.
Wallingford’s aunt Amy Hansen said her nephew loved adventures and had been a firefighter in Maine and South Carolina, the Bangor Daily News reported Sunday.
“He loved the outdoors and loved skydiving,” she said. “He was a true adventure seeker.”
