A Tioga County man is to spend two to six years in prison for causing the death of a bicyclist on Route 11 in Kirkwood last year.

35 year old Brandon Bowen of Newark Valley pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter in the death of 30 year old Bradley Murray.

He was sentenced in Broome County Court April 24

Prosecutors say Bowen was driving while under the influence of a combination of drugs and alcohol when he hit and killed Murray as the Kirkwood man was riding home from work on the shoulder of Upper Court Street in the early morning hours around January 20, 2013 when he was hit by a vehicle.

Murray died a short time later at Wilson Hospital.
