ONEIDA, N.Y. - In an 11th hour decision, Isaac Cantu, who was accused of stabbing and killing Frances Borasky last fall, pleaded guilty late Thursday in Madison County Court.

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.
