WINNEMUCCA, Nev. (AP) — A 15-year-old Winnemucca boy has been sentenced to 20 to 50 years in prison for the shooting death of his mother.

Colton Crouch was 14 when he killed his mother, Twila Crouch, at their home in June 2012.

He said at his sentencing in Elko District Court on Tuesday that he doesn't know why he shot his mother, but is "haunted by it every day" and wishes he could tell her he's sorry.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports (http://tinyurl.com/myupart) the teen told investigators he sometimes had overwhelming feelings of anger and considered suicide.

His sister, Tamara Crouch, said he needs to be incarcerated someplace where he can receive mental treatment. He'll be eligible for parole after 20 years.

Judge Michael Montero said his heart goes out to the family.
