BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - A 22-year-old upstate New York man has been sentenced to 19 years in prison for a fatal shooting at a Binghamton apartment.

Trevis Johnson had nothing to say before his sentencing Tuesday, but Broome County Court Judge Martin Smith called him “as cold-blooded a killer as I’ve ever run into.”

Johnson also will have five years of post-release supervision.

Police arrested Johnson in October of last year and charged him with second-degree murder in the shooting death of 27-year-old Sergio Beldo. Binghamton Police Chief Joseph Zikuski said Beldo was killed by a single shot to the chest from a long gun.

Johnson was indicted for first-degree murder, second-degree murder and attempted first-degree robbery. He faced a maximum of life in prison, but prosecutors agreed to a plea deal in September.
