BOISE -- A Boise man who accidentally shot his cousin has been sentenced to nine months in jail.

24-year-old Derick Sedivy was sentenced Friday.

Back in December, Sedivy pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter for the death of 20-year-old Austin Blankenburg of Kuna.

Blankenburg died May 11th, the day after he was shot in the head.

Police determined that the shooting was unintentional, and that alcohol played a role.
