Big Island man sentenced in shooting of girlfriend


POSTED:



HILO» A retired Hawaii Community Correctional Center guard has been sentenced to 25 years for wounding a Panaewa woman and committing an act of road rage.

The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports 73-year-old Joseph Amormino of Hawaiian Beaches was sentenced Thursday in the injuring of 57-year-old June Shirshac on Mother's Day 2012, and road rage as he drove to see her.

He pleaded guilty Sept. 19 to felony assault, use of a firearm in a felony and terroristic threatening.

Prosecutors say Shirshac had broken off a relationship with Amormino. He changed his plea after Shirshac testified at his trial.

Shirshac was shot in her legs, right hand and shoulder.

She testified that the recently widowed Amormino lavished gifts and a wedding ring on her though she didn't intend to marry him.
