Man gets 30 years in Oregon in shooting of an ex-fire chief


ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — A man accused of crimes spanning four states that culminated with a shooting in Oregon has been sentenced to 30 years in prison and is to be extradited to Colorado to face a murder charge.

Matthew Anthony Fanelli was sentenced Monday in Roseburg for shooting a former fire chief multiple times and pistol-whipping his girlfriend in 2019 while trying to steal their car.

The 32-year-old Fanelli is also accused of the killing of an Uber driver in Colorado, robberies in Wyoming and Utah, and a gunbattle in Oregon, where officials say he led police on a high-speed car chase.
