Elmira, N.Y. (WENY)-- The man found guilty of shooting another man in the head in December of 2016 has learned his fate.
40-year-old Kimani Meadows has been sentenced to 23 years in prison for attempted murder. Meadows shot Sean Hamilton inside a home on John Street in December 2016. In court today, Judge Christopher Baker said the shooting happened over "bad DVD's." Meadows was also sentenced to 23 years for an Assault charge, 23 years for Criminal Use of a Firearm, and 13 years each for three Charges of Criminal Possession of a Weapon. The sentences will run concurrently, meaning Meadows will serve 23 years for the incident.
Meadows is also facing a murder charge in an unrelated case. Meadows is accused of shooting and killing Robyn Roper, a woman from the Bronx. Roper's body was found on Draht Hill Road around the time of the John Street shooting. That murder trial will begin on January 8th.
