    New York City Man Sentenced in Long Island Revenge Killing

    A 30-year-old man charged in a fatal revenge shooting of a romantic rival on Long Island has been sentenced to the maximum 25 years to life in prison.

    Daniel Greenspan, of Manhattan, was sentenced on Thursday after being found guilty of murder in the 2009 killing of 32-year-old Michael Sinclair, of Brooklyn.

    The judge called the killing a "premeditated and personal execution."

    Prosecutors say Greenspan used his girlfriend to lure Sinclair, her former lover, to West Babylon where he shot him to death. They say Greenspan concocted the plot after learning he contracted herpes from his girlfriend who told him she got the viral disease from Sinclair.

    The defense attorney said his client continues to proclaim his innocence.
