FORT DODGE (AP)--A Renwick man who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and robbery last month has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Michael Zamora was sentenced Monday in connection with the 2008 dragging death of 20-year-old Colby Pettigrew in Fort Dodge.

Zamora was sentenced to five years for involuntary manslaughter and 10 years for second-degree robbery.

Zamora was a passenger in a pickup truck that drove off and injured Pettigrew. Investigators say it appeared Pettigrew was dragged by the pickup truck. He died several days later from head injuries.

The pickup driver, Matthew Fowler, was sentenced to five years in prison for leaving the scene of an accident.
