WORCESTER – A Worcester man was sentenced to 18 to 20 years in state prison today after pleading guilty to manslaughter in the December 2015 stabbing death of Cherise Hill, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.

Superior Court Judge Shannon Frison imposed the sentence after Kevin Miranda, 20, of 33 Wellington St., admitted to his role in the slaying of Ms. Hill, who was stabbed to death in the early morning of Dec. 2, 2015 on Murray Avenue.

A second defendant in Ms. Hill’s slaying, Pedro Solis, 29, of 45 Grand St., was found guilty of first-degree murder in January following testimony by Mr. Miranda for the Commonwealth. Mr. Solis was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Assistant District Attorneys Brett Dillon and Anthony Melia prosecuted the case. The slaying was investigated by Worcester Police.
