The man behind an Easter Sunday homicide has been sentenced to 15 years in state prison.

Corey Robinson was originally charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Erika Smith. He later accepted a plea to manslaughter.

Police say the shooting happened after a fight between Robinson and another person during a party on Crocker Avenue in Johnson City.

Robinson fired a shot into a house, hitting Smith, who was not the intended target.

He was later arrested in Georgia and extradited back to Broome County.

In court Monday morning, Robinson tearfully apologized and took full responsibility for his actions.

"There's never perfect justice, never a perfect conclusion. The law is written the way its written and we navigate in that the best we can to get the best outcome for we can, certainly for everyone involved and for society,” said Broome County District Attorney Steve Cornwell.

Robinson was originally facing 25 years to life in prison.
