NAU shooter Steven Jones was sentenced to six years in prison today in connection with the fatal shooting of Colin Brough. Judge Dan Slayton made the announcement in a Coconino County Courtroom. Jones was also sentenced to five years for each count of aggravated assault in the shootings of Nick Piring, Kyle Zientek and Nick Prato in a parking lot of north campus at NAU in October of 2015. The sentences will run concurrent. Before he was sentenced, Jones addressed the court saying, “if it were possible, in a heartbeat I would trade places with Colin Brough.” He added “if he could be home with his family and I could be dead, I would do that.” The sentencing brings an end to the case that lasted four years. The process went through a hung jury and then Jones’ plea deal just before a retrial was set to begin last month.
