"So really, we lost two lives:" Racine teenager sentenced to 41 years behind bars for fatal shooting of girlfriend

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A teenager will spend 41 years behind bars for a deadly shooting.

Keller McQuay was 14-years-old when he shot and killed his girlfriend at a Racine home two years ago.

Vista Jackson's family was in court when the judge handed down the verdict on Monday. They say that McQuay's sentencing should serve as a warning to young people.

"Had he not had that gun, Vista would perhaps be alive today. So really we lost two lives. Both families have lost."

McQuay pleaded guilty to First Degree Reckless Homicide.

He will be 57-years-old when he is released from prison.
