MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) -- A northern Idaho man has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of an acquaintance at a trailer park.
 
Nathaniel H. Nisbet, 28, made the plea Thursday in 2nd District Court. In exchange, prosecutors dropped a second-degree murder charge.

Police say Nisbet shot and killed 42-year-old Charles "Pat" McMichael during a confrontation at the Bel Air Mobile Home Park in Moscow on Nov. 10.

Authorities say McMichael arrived at the home with his wife and Nisbet's estranged wife to change the locks on her mobile home, but McMichael found Nisbet inside with a 9 mm pistol.
 
Judge John R. Stegner has yet to rule on whether he will accept the plea agreement.
 
If he does, Nisbet faces up to 15 years in prison.
