A Jersey City man was sentenced yesterday to 25 years in state prison for the 2019 fatal shooting of a Bayonne woman, authorities said.
Anthony Shuler, 31, of Jersey City, pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated manslaughter on Thursday, August 25th, 2022 and was sentenced yesterday by Hudson County Superior Court Judge Mitzy Galis-Menendez.
The prison sentence is subject to the No Early Release Act and the State was represented in the matter by Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Kevin Roe.
“It is our hope that this sentence provides some comfort to the victim’s loved ones,” Roe noted.
On September 22nd, 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.
