UPDATE Correa found guilty of murdering Campbell man

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio- The Youngstown man accused of murdering a man on New Year's Day in 2011 is sentenced to 43 years to life in prison.

"I had no reason to shoot that man, had no motive to shoot that man," Daro Correa said, before his sentencing.

Mahoning County Common Pleas Judge John Durkin told the 22-year old that his punishment fit the crime in the aggravated murder death of Randy Cappelli.

"No matter what demons Randy Cappelli fought in his life, he certainly did not deserve to die as he did," Durkin said.

Cappelli was discovered dead next to his burning car on Shady Run Road the morning of January 1, 2011, with multiple gunshot wounds, some to his head.

Correa was found guilty on several counts including murder, arson, robbery and tampering with evidence in his death.

Cappelli's sister Dina says waiting for final word on his punishment has been tough and she's happy with the lengthy stay Correa will have in prison.

"It's been real hard, we've waited two years for this, so we're really happy that he got what he did, he deserves it, he deserves to rott," Dina Cappelli said, Randy Cappelli's sister.

The second suspect in the shooting, Emmanuel Dawson, 32, is also charged in the murder, but he has yet to go to trial.
