A Rochester teen has been sentenced to two to six years behind bars for manslaughter in the death of his girlfriend in May.

Seventeen-year-old Jermaine Brown pleaded guilty to a charge of manslaughter in the death of 18-year-old Ciara Grimes.

On May 9, police found Grimes suffering from a gunshot wound in a driveway at a home on Delamaine Drive. She was transported to the University of Rochester Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

Days later, Brown, her ex-boyfriend, was arrested in the case, accused of recklessly shooting her with a .25 caliber pistol. Police said he also violated a no-contact order issued by Rochester City Court.

Brown will serve a concurrent sentence of three years in prison for a drug charge and two years post-release supervision.
