A judge in Nicaragua sentenced a 23-year-old man to 30 years in prison for the upstate New York murder of a nursing student from Long Island.
Orlando Tercero had fled to the Central American nation after prosecutors say he strangled fellow SUNY Binghamton nursing student Haley Anderson at his off-campus apartment in March of 2018. He is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Nicaragua.
The judge in Managua gave Tercero the maximum sentence allowed under Nicaraguan law on Friday after convicting him of femicide earlier this month. Family members and prosecutors said they were satisifed with the result despite the unusual way the case was tried.
Witnesses testified with the help of a translator and via a video link from a room in the district attorney’s office in downtown Binghamton.
Authorities say Tercero and Anderson were romantically involved and that he wanted a more serious relationship. The 22-year-old Anderson, who grew up in Westbury, was found dead in Tercero’s bed.
