The illegal immigrant who accidentally shot and killed a man who was sleeping in an adjacent Saratoga County motel room pleaded guilty on Monday to criminally negligent homicide and criminal possession of a weapon.
Only NewsChannel 13's camera was in court as Daniel Salas-Miranda admitted accidentally firing his gun through the wall of a room at the Crest Inn in Wilton.
The illegal alien from Mexico was cleaning his gun when it fired through the wall, then through a refrigerator and into the body of Michael Kornacki.
Judge Jim Murphy will sentence Salas-Miranda to 10 years in state prison, then he'll serve another two years in federal prison before he's deported to Mexico.
