On Friday, a man found guilty of shooting and killing a 20-year-old woman in upstate New York while driving an SUV up his rural driveway by accident received a sentence ranging from 25 years to life in prison.

What Happened?

After Kaylin Gillis died, Kevin Monahan, 66, was found guilty of second-degree murder. Gillis’s companions were searching for someone else’s house last April when they pulled onto Monahan’s long, winding driveway in the village of Hebron in a caravan consisting of two cars and a motorcycle.

The maximum term for the conviction was 25 years to life, which the prosecutors had previously stated they would pursue.

The news of Gillis’s passing spread well beyond upstate New York. It happened a few days following Ralph Yarl’s 16-year-old shooting in Kansas City. While attempting to pick up his younger brothers, Yarl, a Black man, went to the wrong door and was stabbed by an 84-year-old White man.

The pals were on their way to a party the evening Gillis passed away when they unintentionally went down Monahan’s driveway. Stepping outside his house, Monahan fired two rounds from his deck, the second taking Gillis’s neck when she was sitting in the front passenger seat of an SUV her boyfriend was driving.

Monahan insisted that the fatal shot was the result of a malfunctioning gun, and he thought intruders were “under siege” in the home he and his wife shared, which was located approximately 40 miles north of Albany. He claimed that as his wife hid inside, he tried to scare the group away by coming out with a shotgun. A friend of Gillis’s named Alexandra Whiting stated in court in January that the gun was pointed in their direction when it happened.
