(WBNG) -- The Broome County District Attorney’s Office announced Brandon Rose of Endicott was sentenced to 25 years in prison for his guilty plea to murder in the second degree.

In May 2021, Rose pleaded guilty to stabbing and shooting Omar Terry of Johnson City to death in July 2020 during a dispute.

In a news release, Broome County District Attorney Michael A. Korchak said the sentencing was “appropriate.”

“This was a horrific act committed by someone with no regard for human life,” Korchak said.

In July 2020, the Johnson City Police Department responded to crash on Route 17 by Exit 70. That’s when officers found Terry’s body in the crashed vehicle with gunshot and stab wounds. Rose was found hiding nearby.

Korchak thanked the Johnson City Police Department and the New York State Police for their investigation.
