NORWICH, Conn. (AP) – A New York City man convicted in the 2008 shooting death of a man outside a Connecticut bar has been sentenced to 60 years in prison.
Thirty-three-year-old Jose Ramos was given the maximum sentence Friday in Norwich in the death of 29-year-old Tynell Hardwick.
Authorities say Ramos shot Hardwick in the head on Oct. 10, 2008, outside a bar in Norwich. They say Ramos shot Hardwick from across the street after a dispute earlier that evening inside the bar.
Ramos was arrested in September 2012 following an investigation by the Eastern Connecticut Cold Case Unit. He was found guilty of murder in February.
Ramos told Hardwick’s family in court that he was sorry for their loss but maintained his innocence in the killing.
