DA: Kostick pleads guilty to manslaughter


BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- A man pleaded guilty for the death of his father in Broome County Court Tuesday morning.

The Broome County District Attorney's Office says 34-year-old Shawn M. Kostick pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter, a class B felony.

According to his plea, Kostick intended to cause "serious physical injury" to his father, Harry J. Kostick, but it resulted in the father's death.

The event occurred from Sept. 1 to Oct. 3 2014 at his father's residence on Lincoln Avenue in Endicott.

Kostick is scheduled to be sentenced on April 16. The district attorney's office says Kostick will be sentenced to 10 years in prison, which will begin immediately after his current prison sentence for burglary.

Kostick will serve a parole term for both the burglary and manslaughter charges.
