Cordon tape seals off an active crime scene.

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A 26-year-old Louisiana man has been sentenced to 70 years in prison for killing a man with a crossbow.

The Caddo Parish District Attorney’s Office says Judge Chris Victory sentenced Daniel Ralph Haire on Thursday in the death of 33-year-old Rodney Christopher Nordby. Haire was convicted in May of manslaughter.

Teens had found the victim near a parking lot

Sheriff Steve Prator said in a news release when Haire was arrested that Nordby’s body had been wrapped in two comforters and left near a parking lot at Wallace Lake. Two teenagers found it there on February 29, 2020.
