CMPD said it did not believe the shooting was accidental.

Court documents say McBride’s sentence was increased because he “took property of significant monetary value.”

The sentencing document states that “the defendant took advantage of a position of trust.” He noted that McBride had “no remorse” and that the murder was “premeditated and deliberate by the defendant in order to kill the victim.”

Because McBride agreed to a plea deal. He is expected to spend between 300 and 375 months in prison. He has already spent 335 days in prison, so that will be reduced from his sentence.
