MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) — An Arizona man originally charged with killing his mother-in-law in central Florida has been sentenced to 30 months in prison after accepting a plea deal for a lesser charge.

A Brevard County judge sentenced 76-year-old Ronald Bozik on Friday. He pleaded no contest last month to accessory after the fact to second-degree murder. He was originally charged with second-degree murder and tampering with evidence in the slaying of 82-year-old Lila Watsonwith.

Bozik was visiting from Phoenix in April when he was arrested. Authorities say Bozik killed Watsonwith at her Indialantic home over a financial disagreement. Court records showed the woman died from blunt force trauma

Prosecutors offered Bozik the plea deal after an earlier trial in November ended in a hung jury.
