Man Gets Up to 20 Years for Killing Friend

The man who killed his friend for being in bed with his girlfriend has been sentenced to 10 to 20 years in state prison.

28-year-old Greg Riehl of Coudersport pleaded guilty in November to involuntary manslaughter for killing 27-year-old Anthony Palmieri in April of last year. He had originally been charged with murder.

Riehl told police he and 35-year-old Michelle Nelson and had been drinking at Palmieri’s house. Riehl passed out and, when he woke up, found Nelson and Palmieri in bed together and shot the other man.

Riehl then drove to Lancaster County, where his father lives, to “tell him something.” After the father and son had breakfast together, Riehl turned himself in.
