FALL RIVER — A Massachusetts man who admitted to killing another man at a city park has been sentenced to up to 18 years in prison.

The Taunton Gazette reports 20-year-old Syrelle Grace, of Taunton, was sentenced to 13-to-18 years in prison on Thursday in a Fall River court. Grace pleaded guilty to multiple charges including manslaughter and armed robbery with a gun in the 2015 killing of 19-year-old Marcel Francois.

Prosecutors say Grace shot and killed Francois on a basketball court in New Bedford’s Harrington Park.

A judge ordered Grace to serve three years’ probation following his release.
