A Madison County man will serve 15 years in prison for stabbing a man to death in Oneida in fall 2016.

Eighteen-year-old Isaac Cantu was sentenced today in Madison County Court. He accepted a plea offer last month, pleading guilty to stabbing Francis Borasky of Oneida in September 2016. Cantu was charged with murder, manslaughter, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

According to police, on Sept. 18, 2016, Cantu and 17-year-old Jordan Warner of Oneida got into an argument with Borasky outside his home in Oneida, and Borasky was stabbed several times during the fight.

Warner accepted a plea deal early on with the condition that he would testify against Cantu if the prosecution needed him to during Cantu’s trial. Cantu’s trial began at the end of November and lasted through the first week of December. When the jury was charged, instead of waiting for them to deliberate and come to a verdict, Cantu instead decided to plead guilty.

In addition to serving 15 years in prison, he will also have five years of post-release supervision and $1,500 restitution for unpaid funeral expenses. By pleading guilty he also waived his right to appeal his conviction.
