ALBANY, N.Y. -- Albany Police Officer Christofer Kitto has resigned from his position with the police department and pleaded guilty to DWAI.

He was accused of shooting a Syracuse man to death in what Utica police called a ‘justifiable homicide.’

Tuesday in Utica City Court, Kitto pleaded to driving while ability impaired, and the patronizing a prostitute charge was dropped.

He had to pay a $500 fine and a $255 surcharge. His license has also been suspended for 90 days.

Kitto resigned from the Albany Police Department Monday.
