ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) – Kimani Meadows has been sentenced to a maximum sentence of 25 years to life on second degree murder charges after he killed a Bronx woman and left her bullet-riddled body on Draht Hill Road in the Town of Elmira in 2016.
According to Weeden Wetmore, the Chemung County District Attorney, Meadows shot Robyn Roper five times, including once in the head.
Meadows was found guilty of murder during a jury trial back in May.
He was also sentenced on two other counts. He will serve 15 years plus 5 years probation for Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree. He will also serve 3.5 to 7 years for Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Third Degree.
According to the court, these sentences will run concurrent with one another. They will also run concurrently with his previous attempted murder sentence.
Meadows is already behind bars, serving a 23-year prison sentence for attempted murder. In that case, Meadows shot a man inside of a John Street home in Elmira.
