BEAVER TOWNSHIP -- A man convicted of killing his grandmother in Snyder County is getting his sentence reduced.
Joshua Snook requested a new trial claiming his attorney was not effective.
He was convicted of killing Bonnie Snook at a home near Middleburg back in 2013.
Snook was sentenced to 20 to 60 years.
Prosecutors made a deal with Snook Tuesday to withdraw his request for a new trial in exchange for a new sentence.
Snook will now spend at least 16 years behind bars.
