A Jersey City man who pleaded guilty to the death of a Bayonne woman in 2019 has been sentenced to 25 years in prison, according to a statement issued by Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez.
On September 22, 2019, at approximately 5:10 a.m., members of the Bayonne Police Department responded to 484 John F. Kennedy Boulevard on a report of a potential domestic violence incident.
Upon arrival, officers located an unresponsive female – later identified as Diamond Robinson, 26, of Bayonne – with an apparent gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 5:30 a.m. The shooter was later identified as Anthony Shuler, a 31-year-old of Jersey City, who pleaded guilty in connection with the shooting death of the 26-year-old.
Shuler pleaded guilty to one count of Aggravated Manslaughter, a crime of the first degree, as previously reported by the Hudson Reporter.
Shuler sentencing is subject to the “No Early Release Act,” meaning he would have to serve at least 85 percent of his total jail time before consideration of parole.
“It is our hope that this sentence provides some comfort to the victim’s loved ones,” said assistant prosecutor Kevin Roe.
