An upstate New York hunter has been sentenced to one to three years in prison for accidentally killing a neighbor he mistook for a deer.

Thomas Jadlowski was sentenced on Monday in Chautauqua County Court. He pleaded guilty in October to criminally negligent homicide and hunting after sunset.

Authorities said Jadlowski shot Rose Billquist with a high-powered hunting pistol as she walked her dogs in fields behind her rural Sherman home on Thanksgiving eve in 2017.
