SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- The third of four suspects in the death of a Salina man will serve two years of probation.

Twenty-year-old Tyeler Cookson also was ordered Thursday to perform 40 hours of community service for the death of 48-year-old Robert Unselt, who was killed in January during a fight.

Before his sentencing, Cookson testified that Unselt died after hitting his head on the pavement during the fight. He said Unselt started the confrontation with the four men.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/Kf9NJ3 ) Unselt's family has disputed that contention. His wife has filed a $1 million wrongful death lawsuit against the four defendants.
