A 20-year-old Athens County man who admitted to beating another man to death is headed to prison.

Gary Wooten, of Glouster, was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison.

Wooten pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and felonious assault in the death of Harley Pruitt, 20, of Buchtel.

Prosecutors say Wooten got into a fight with Pruitt in May 2012.

Pruitt later died from his injuries.
