Man sentenced in fatal traffic stop slaying

A 51-year-old man was sentenced this morning to eight to 20 years in prison for the shooting death of another man at a traffic stop in 2008.

Ralph Fuller pleaded guilty to in November to voluntary manslaughter with use of a deadly weapon for the Dec. 16, 2008, killing of 48-year-old Michael McDaniels at the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Owens Avenue.

Authorities said Fuller and McDaniels were in a dispute over drugs. Las Vegas police said McDaniels fired a handgun into Fuller’s mother’s house before Fuller shot and killed him.

Fuller tearfully apologized to the victim’s family before he was sentenced by District Judge Elissa Cadish.
