A New York man has been sentenced to decades in prison for killing a person while he was free on bail for an attempted murder just months earlier.
In February 2020, Carl Hannans, 21, shot a 17-year-old in the arm in Poughkeepsie and later claimed he believed the victim was robbing him, Mid-Hudson News reported.
Hannans was taken into custody, and while out on a $10,000 cash bail, Poughkeepsie police rearrested him in connection to the April 2020 murder of Evan Davis at an apartment complex, according to the publication.
In the first case, Hannans pleaded guilty to one count of attempted murder, one count of assault, four counts of attempted robbery, and three counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
The judge on the case called the shooting a “cowardly ambush” and sentenced Hannans in December to 23 years for the attempted murder.
Hannans recently received a second sentence of 25 years behind bars for Davis’ slaying.
News 12 Westchester reported Hannan will serve the two sentences concurrently.
