MANCHESTER - A city man will likely spend decades behind bars after pleading guilty to the 2016 murder of Hans R. Obige, 25, and the wounding of another.
John Gebo, 31, of 273 Belmont St., pled guilty Wednesday to second-degree murder and first-degree assault, for firing shots on June 1, 2016 into an apartment at 91 West St. striking two people inside. Odige, 35, died at the scene and Ashley Thompson, 25, suffered a non-life threatening leg wound.
Gebo was immediately sentenced to 30 years in prison for the murder and another seven and a half to 15 years for the assault. The sentences are to be served consecutively, so Gebo could potentially spend as along as 45 years behind bars. However, contingent on Gebo's good behavior, the assault sentence was suspended for 10 years.
"The successful resolution of this case was the result of the collaborative efforts of the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office, the Manchester Police Department, and the Hillsborough County Attorney’s Office," said the N.H. Attorney General's Office in a statement.
Amanda Gurley, 27, of 273 Belmont St., also was charged in the shooting. Prosecutors allege she drove Gebo to the apartment providing surveillance immediately prior.
