GOSHEN, N.Y. (AP) - A hunter who accidentally shot and killed a friend while they were stalking deer in Orange County has pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide.

Guy Wensley, of Plattekill, entered the plea Friday at a county court in Goshen.

The Times Herald-Record, of Middletown, reports (http://bit.ly/1lMKvpV ) that the 40-year-old shot close friend Timothy Evans in the autumn of 2012.

The two had split up. Evans was wearing camouflage. Wensley saw something moving, thought his friend might be a deer, and fired.

The judge imposed a sentence that won't require Wensley to serve jail time.
