Man gets 19 years for killing US girl in Tobago

Man gets 19 years for killing US girl in Tobago

A judge has sentenced a man to 19 years at hard labor for killing a U.S. teen on the Caribbean island of Tobago.
Sean Antoine was convicted in April of killing 14-year-old Kitty Pepe of Keene, New York. The 28-year-old had dated the girl but they had broken up. He stabbed her to death in 2005.
Antoine faced up to life in prison if convicted of murder. But jurors convicted him of manslaughter after he testified the girl had taunted him.
Justice Geoffrey Henderson said Monday that Antoine did not deserve the lesser charge.
Antoine's lawyer said he did not plan to appeal. He'll be eligible for release after 14 years.
