Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - A judge sentenced a 17-year-old Rochester boy for shooting and killing his girlfriend back in May.

Jermaine Brown, 17, was sentenced to 2-6 years in state prison after being pleading guilty to manslaughter in the death of 18-year-old Ciara Grimes.

The manslaughter sentenced will be served concurrently to a sentence of three years in prison and two years post-release for a separate conviction on a third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance charge.

On May 9, Brown shot Grimes inside a home on Delamaine Drive. Police say she was brought outside and left in the driveway of the home. The two had reportedly been in a relationship, but a no contact order of protection had been filed against Brown for Grimes just four days before the shooting.
