The Associated Press reports:
Federal prosecutors are seeking a year in prison for two men who admitted that they shot and killed five wild mustangs last fall about 150 miles northwest of Reno. Probation officials had recommended six months in prison, but Dan Bogden, the United States attorney for Nevada, said the stiffer sentence was warranted because there was “no justifiable reason” for the killings. Sentencing had been scheduled for Tuesday for the two men, Todd Davis, 45, and Joshua Keathley, 36, both of Lovelock. It was postponed until Nov. 3 to give both sides more time to prepare. Mr. Bogden noted in a new court filing that a year in prison might help provide the training and education that the two unemployed men needed to get jobs.
