SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KYOU) - An 18-year-old man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for the shooting death of a woman at a New Year’s Eve party in Sioux City.

Station KTIV reports that Anthony Bauer was sentenced Friday morning after pleaded guilty in June to second-degree murder.

In his plea, Bauer admitted that he and others fired several shots into a home where people were gathered for a New Year’s Eve party, killing 18-year-old Mia Kritis and wounding three others.

In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dropped his original charge of first-degree murder.

Under the plea deal, Bauer must serve 35 years in prison before he is eligible for parole.

Bauer was one of four people charged in the shooting.
