HAVERHILL, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man who shot a police officer's killer in Franconia two years ago got a suspended sentence in his own latest scrape with the law.

Gregory Floyd of Easton was quickly cleared of wrongdoing in 2007 when he shot and killed a man who had just gunned down a Franconia police officer.

But Floyd was convicted of threatening a neighbor last year and faced charges from two angry outbursts in court, most recently in March.

He returned to court Monday and pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors. According to WMUR-TV, the judge give him a pair of 1-year jail terms, both suspended provided that Floyd stays out of trouble.
