Prosecutors say a man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the 2019 shooting death of a woman, which occurred less than a year after he was acquitted of a separate homicide.
According to Hudson County prosecutors, Anthony Shuler, 31, of Jersey City, pleaded guilty Thursday to first-degree aggravated manslaughter in the slaying of Diamond Robinson, 26, of Bayonne.
Authorities say she was shot in the face in September 2019. Prosecutors say they will recommend a 25-year prison term when Shuler is sentenced Dec. 2.
Ten months before the shooting, Shuler had been acquitted in the June 2010 slaying of Darren Edwards in Jersey City.
