AIKEN, S.C. (AP) -- An Aiken man has been sentenced to 18 years in prison in the killing of a teen whose body was found buried in a shallow grave.

The Aiken Standard reports Saturday that 26-year-old Christopher Parker was sentenced after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

Authorities said 18-year-old Huran Dix was shot in January 2012 over a stolen income check.

His body was found after a witness found his hat in woods near New Ellenton. Deputies followed a trail of blood from the hat to the shallow grave where Dix's body was found.

Prosecutors said the two men were in an SUV with several others when a sawed-off shotgun went off in Parker's hands, striking Dix.
