Man who loaned gun to killer of Utah student sentenced

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Nathan Daniel Vogel was sentenced Wednesday to three years of supervised release. He’s the man who loaned a firearm to another man who reportedly killed University of Utah student-athlete Lauren McCluskey

At a hearing on Wednesday, Vogel, 22, said he accepts responsibility for loaning the weapon to McCluskey’s ex-boyfriend Melvin Rowland.  Vogel says he “shakes” when he thinks about McCluskey’s death, which he called extremely sad.

Federal prosecutor Carlos Esqueda says McCluskey’s parents were consulted and agreed to the terms of the sentence.

McCluskey and Rowland had briefly dated but broke up before he shot her outside her dorm at the U. of U. last year.
