TULSA, Okla. (AP) A former manager at an Oklahoma Arby's restaurant who was charged with fatally shooting a customer she said spit on her has been sentenced to two decades in prison.

Deionna Young, 26, pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter Monday.

Court records say Young will serve 20 years in prison, with the remaining five years of her sentence suspended, for killing Desean Tallent, 25.

Young reported to police that Tallent cursed and spit on her, so she asked him to leave.

Police say Tallent later returned to the restaurant and Young followed him in her vehicle and shot into his car.
