Binghamton Man Found Guilty of Murder
A Binghamton man could spend the rest of his life in prison for shooting another man to death in front of the Rock B Tavern on Conklin Avenue on Binghamton’s south side on September 8 of 2012.
After about five and a half hours of deliberation, a Broome County jury found 22 year old Isaiah Criss guilty of felony counts of murder and criminal possession of a weapon in the slaying of 26 year old Jeremiah Reynolds.
Authorities say Reynolds had interfered in a fight involving one of Criss’ friends a week before he was gunned down.
Prosecutors say the shooting was in retaliation for the earlier incident in which Reynolds reportedly had beaten up Criss’ friend.
Criss will be sentenced April 25.
He faces a maximum of up to 25 years to life in prison.
