UTICA – The man who is accused of beating his girlfriend to death in Utica earlier this year has accepted a plea deal.

In Oneida County Court on Friday, 32-year-old Brian Brewczynski pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in exchange for 22 ½ years in state prison.

On May 18, police were called to 608 William Street where they found Brewczynski's girlfriend, 49-year-old Cheri Saupp, unconscious. She was then transported to St. Elizabeth Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Brewczynski was initially charged with first-degree manslaughter, which was then upgraded to second-degree murder after evidence was presented to an Oneida County grand jury. On Monday, the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office presented Brewczynski with a plea offer of 22 ½ years in prison in exchange for a guilty plea for first-degree manslaughter.

Brewczynski is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 10.
