Binghamton Killer Sentenced to 50 Years to Life
A Binghamton man convicted in a deadly shooting at a West Side home has been sentenced to 50 years to life in prison.
28-year-old Nicholas Chappell had been found guilty of murder and attempted murder by a Broome County court jury. He also was convicted of counts of assault and criminal use of a firearm.
Chappell was sentenced Wednesday morning by Judge Kevin Dooley.
Prosecutors had said Chappell fatally shot 23-year-old David Sanborn of Whitney Point on August 31. 26-year-old Jordan Doolittle of Windsor was also shot. Investigators said although Doolittle was critically injured, he managed to restrain Chappell in a headlock after the shooting.
Doolittle previously had lived with Chappell at the home at 1 Mozart Street. He had moved out but returned with Sanborn to pick up some of his belongings.
