The stabbing happened as a result of a street fight in September of 2016. Cantu was charged with murder, manslaughter, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon.

The jury was charged with the case just after lunchtime on Thursday, but according to the Oneida Dispatch newspaper, Cantu decided to take a plea deal instead.

Under the plea, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter, gets 15 years in prison, 5 years post-release supervision, $1,500 in restitution for unpaid funeral expenses, and waived his right to appeal his conviction.

One other person already took a plea in this case.
