BOSTON (AP) - A Boston man will serve 27½ to 30 years in prison for the crossfire shooting death of a visiting Kentucky woman in 2007.
A judge on Friday sentenced Casimiro Barros to the maximum after he was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and assault and battery in the death of 22-year-old Chiara Levin.
Prosecutors say 22-year-old Barros and 35-year-old Manuel Andrade were shooting at each other on a Boston street when a stray bullet hit Levin in the head. Levin, a Danville, Ky., native, was in Boston to visit friends and attend a relative's birthday party. She and friends had gone to a party with Andrade after meeting him in a nightclub.
Barros plans to appeal his convictions. Andrade is expected to stand trial for his alleged role in Levin's death next month.
