Man convicted of fatal shooting in NYC subway gets life term

A man convicted of fatally shooting another man in a New York City subway station has been sentenced to life in prison.

Twenty-five-year-old Francisco Alsina was sentenced Thursday for the 2015 murder of 43-year-old Angel Quinones, who police say was shot in the neck inside a Manhattan station.

Alsina didn't appear in the Manhattan court to hear his sentence. His lawyer said he didn't want the media to take his photo.

The Daily News reports Alsina requested, but was denied leniency, in his sentencing by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Charles Solomon.

The judge said the killing was an execution, and added: "I really think that there's no mercy to be shown to him."
