Posted June 16
NEW YORK — A man convicted of fatally shooting another man in a New York City subway station has been sentenced to life in prison.
Twenty-five-year-old Francisco Alsina was sentenced Thursday for the 2015 murder of 43-year-old Angel Quinones, who police say was shot in the neck inside a Manhattan station.
Alsina didn't appear in the Manhattan court to hear his sentence. His lawyer said he didn't want the media to take his photo.
The Daily News reports (http://nydn.us/2s8jdoC ) Alsina requested, but was denied leniency, in his sentencing by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Charles Solomon.
The judge said the killing was an execution, and added: "I really think that there's no mercy to be shown to him."
