Easter Morning Fatal Shooting Indictment
The suspect in the Easter morning fatal shooting of a woman on Crocker Avenue in Johnson City is under formal indictment for murder.
The indictment against 29 year old Corey “Gutter” Robinson was unsealed during his arraignment in Broome County court yesterday. Robinson pleaded not guilty to the murder of 46 year old Erika Smith-Cunningham.
Prosecutors claim Robinson got into a dispute with people at a house party on Crocker Avenue April 1, left the party and came back with a shotgun, which was fired at the house at around 6:30, striking Smith-Cunningham. The Binghamton woman, who is originally from Queens, was said to have not been the intended target. Two others were also hurt in the incident.
A gun, believed to be the murder weapon and un-spent ammunition were found in and around the Susquehanna River in the Town of Union in the days that followed the killing. Robinson was tracked to Georgia, where he was arrested in Marietta April 5. He was returned to Broome County Friday.
No trial date has been set.
Robinson could face up to life in prison if convicted of second degree murder.
The Broome County District Attorney says the investigation is continuing.
