The teen convicted of killing 19-year-old Charlotte Jolly in Saskatoon has received an adult sentence of eight years behind bars.

Jolly was found dead on Sept. 1, 2009 following a confrontation with two groups of young people on the street.

Daniel George Cote was found guilty of manslaughter in the death in May. Cote had originally been charged with second-degree murder, but a judge ruled the Crown had failed to prove he intended to kill Jolly.

The court heard Cote, who was 16 at the time of the offence, struck Jolly with a single shot from a .22-cal. rifle.

A publication ban on Cote's name was lifted after his sentencing as an adult.
