BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- The suspect in an Easter Sunday homicide pleads guilty to a reduced charge of first-degree manslaughter.
Corey Robinson, 29, was originally charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of Erika Smith.
Police say the shooting happened after a fight between Robinson and another person during a party on Crocker Avenue in Johnson City.
Broome County District Attorney Steve Cornwell says Robinson fired a shot into a house, but Smith wasn't the intended target.
Robinson was later arrested in Georgia before being extradited back to Broome County.
“Based on the facts and circumstances of the case, and strengths and weaknesses of the case and the witnesses that were involved in the case that we would need in the trial, we thought manslaughter in the 1st degree which is one step down from murder in the second degree,” said Cornwell.
Robinson is set to be sentenced September 10.
