A teen has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for his involvement in the stabbing death of an Oneida father in 2016.
Isaac Cantu — who was 17-years-old at the time of the crime — pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in December in the death of 35-year-old Francis Borasky.
Cantu and his co-defendant — 17-year-old Jordan Warner — stabbed Borasky to death near the intersection of Lexington and Pearl Streets in 2016.
Police say the incident began at Borasky’s home and continued to the other end of the neighborhood where others became involved.
The incident escalated into a “chaotic situation,” and that’s when the stabbing occurred, police said.
Cantu was also sentenced to five years of post-release supervision.
He must also pay $1,500 in restitution, and orders of protection have been issued against him on behalf of the victim’s family and prosecution witnesses.
