Man sentenced to 9 years for manslaughter charge

Posted:
GATESVILLE -

A Copperas Cove man has been sentenced to 9 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for the manslaughter death of Rosanna Andrade.

David Tamuno Tonya Pelebo, was arraigned and charged in October for the death of Andrade. On Monday, he was sentenced to 9 years in TDCJ.

In March of 2011, Copperas Cove police responded to 1208 Dryden Ave. in reference to a female who had been shot in the head. When officers arrived, they found Pelebo in the front yard.

He directed them to the master bedroom, where officers located Andrade with a gunshot wound to the head.

Pelebo initially provided conflicting statements about the shooting before admitting he accidentally shot her while they were lying in bed, with what he believed was an unloaded gun.
