A northeast Philadelphia man has been sentenced to 23 1/2 to 47 years in prison for fatally shooting another man at a restaurant in the trendy Northern Liberties section of the city.
The Philadelphia Inquirer said the sentencing judge Thursday rejected a plea for leniency for Steven Miller in the June 2012 shooting of 24-year-old Maurice Kimble on the patio of the PYT restaurant on Hancock Street at the Piazza at Schmidts complex.
Miller was convicted in October of third-degree murder and firearms offenses but acquitted of first-degree murder in the shooting.
Police say Miller shot Kimble twice in the chest following an argument that started outside of the restaurant. They say the argument occured after the victim made a pass at a woman Miller knew.
