BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - A Binghamton man has admitted to fatally stabbing his half-brother during a domestic dispute in July.

The Press & Sun-Bulletin of Binghamton reports (https://press.sn/1JZTbDb ) 38-year-old Antonio Jenkins pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree manslaughter as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.

Jenkins faces up to five years in prison when he’s sentenced Dec. 1.

Police were called to a residence on Main Street in Binghamton following reports of a domestic dispute taking place on July 16.

Responding officers found 22-year-old Jerome Williams lying on the sidewalk with stab wounds to his chest. He died six hours later.

Binghamton Police Chief Joseph Zikuski says officers “beat the bushes” to obtain information from uncooperative witnesses. Jenkins was later identified as the suspect.

Williams’ death was the city’s first murder in 2015.
