Casey Viner, a 19-year-old co-suspect of a deadly joke with the 911 emergency number in the United States, has been sentenced to 15 months in prison. The main suspect in the case was sentenced to 20 years in prison in March.

The case revolves around the so-called swatting, where someone calls the American police and makes a false report. The incident led in December 2017 to the death of an innocent 28-year-old man in the US state of Kansas.

The 26-year-old prime suspect Tyler Barris admitted earlier to be guilty of making the false report. He was prompted to do so by Viner, who passed on the innocent man's address because he thought Shane Gaskill lived there, with whom he had a fight online.

Viner asked Barris to send the police to the address after a fight in the online shooting game Call of Duty: WWII . Gaskill, however, had provided an old address.

Gaskill also has to appear in court. He is suspected of, among other things, electronic forgery of documents. He can receive a prison sentence of up to twenty years for this fact.
