A Rochester man was sentenced in Oneida County Court Monday for trying to kill a man in Utica last year. Thirty-six-year-old Brandell Watkins shot Jonathan Hines multiple times at a South Street mini-market last December.
Police arrested him in Rochester. Watkins pleaded guilty to attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon. He’ll spend a minimum of 15 years in state prison.
