New Haven man gets 20 years in prison in fatal shooting
NEW HAVEN — A New Haven man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for his role in a 2012 robbery attempt that led to a fatal shooting.
The New Haven Register reports 23-year-old John Claudio pleaded guilty in September to being an accessory to first-degree manslaughter with a firearm and conspiracy to commit a first-degree robbery.
Claudio and co-defendant Xavier Yancey originally faced murder counts in the death of 23-year-old Joseph Mirvil. Authorities say Mirvil was shot on Sept. 18, 2012, during a botched robbery attempt at an apartment in the Malcolm Court section of the Church Street South complex.
Yancey pleaded guilty to similar charges and was sentenced to 17 years in prison earlier this month.
Claudio apologized in court.
