Two `Skinheads' Sentenced In Slaying

Seattle Times Staff: Seattle Times News Services

COEUR D'ALENE, Id. - A judge has ordered prison sentences of 19 years and 15 years for two men convicted in the slaying of a fellow "skinhead" at the compound of the white-supremacist Aryan Nations.

Sentenced to 19 years was Timothy Biscope, 19, of Calgary, Alberta, who pleaded guilty last month to second-degree murder in the death of Johnny Sharbnow.

Adam Elteto, 23, of San Diego, was handed a 15-year prison sentence. Elteto also pleaded guilty last month to second-degree murder in Sharbnow's death.

Biscope confessed to shooting Sharbnow Dec. 8 on a remote road after Sharbnow and Elteto had fought. A logger found Sharbnow's body hidden in the woods eight days later.
