Finnegan and Fleming were hanging out at a friend's house, back in April of 2009, when she was shot.

At first, Fleming told police Kaitlyn was shot in a drive-by, but later said he accidentally shot her.

It is an 85 percent crime, so Fleming will have to serve 25 years before he's eligible for parole.
