Posted:

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- A man convicted of murdering a father of six during an argument was sentenced Wednesday.

Terell Bethea received a sentence of 17 years to life in prison, for the fatal 2012 shooting of Charles Bowman.

It was an emotional day in court as the mother, daughter and other family members of Charles Bowman waited to hear just how long Terrell Bethea would spend behind bars for the October murder.

Police say Bethea shot and killed Bowman on Schenectady Street during a heated argument. He was expected to receive a life sentence, but will now be eligible for parole in 17 years.
