A Hudson Valley man admitted to killing a fleeing man, in what appeared to be a drug deal gone wrong.

 

On Friday in Orange County Court, 25-year-old Fabian Corley of Newburgh pleaded guilty to manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon in connection with the shooting death of a man on March 7, on Hasbrouck Street in the City Newburgh.

Corley admitted that he killed the 31-year-old Hubert Hines of Newburgh with an illegally possessed hand gun outside his home.

At the time of his arrest, Corley was charged with possessing cocaine with the intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia. A search of his home resulted in the seizure of cocaine, scales and packaging materials commonly used in the sale of cocaine, police say.

Video from a surveillance camera showed that after Corley engaged in what appeared to be a drug deal outside of his home he was approached by a Hines who showed what appeared to be a gun.

Corley pulled out his gun and shot the man in the back as he was fleeing. A pellet gun, which closely resembles an actual hand-gun, was found near the dead man’s body.

In court, Corley admitted that by shooting the man in the back, he wasn’t acting in self-defense.

As part of his guilty plea, Corley will likely be sentenced to 16-years in prison.
