BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man who pleaded guilty to shooting his daughter's boyfriend in 2011 has been sentenced to at least five years in jail.

Ed Tetreault of Townshend has been incarcerated since November 2011, and will get credit for time served.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports court documents say the 57-year-old Tetreault got into an argument with the boyfriend the day before the shooting. The boyfriend head-butted Tetreault.

Tetreault shot him in the jaw and shoulder during a struggle.

Tetreault apologized in court Tuesday. He was originally charged with three counts of first-degree aggravated domestic assault with a weapon and one count of aggravated assault. He agreed to plead guilty to one count of aggravated assault and the other counts were dismissed.
