Long Island man gets 25 years to life in prison for bow-and-arrow killing on neighbor's lawn
RIVERHEAD, N.Y. A hunter convicted of fatally shooting a man on his neighbor's lawn with a bow and arrow was sentenced Tuesday to the maximum sentence of 25 years to life in prison.
Thomas Sirico admitted that he acted carelessly when he pierced Juan Carlos ``Angel'' Munoz, 27, in the chest with an arrow from a bow on Jan. 8, 2006. But Sirico said he should have been convicted of a lesser charge than murder.
``I am very remorseful,'' Sirico, 35, said before the sentencing.
