BUFFALO, NY – A man who brutally stabbed and killed 29-year-old Ronald Green outside a corner store at the intersection of East Ferry Street and Jefferson Avenue has been sentenced to 21 years in prison with 5 years of post-release supervision.

Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn announced that 30-year-old Quinton O. Turner of Buffalo was sentenced for the charge of first-degree manslaughter which he pleaded guilty to in April.

According to the Erie County District Attorney’s Office, on January 5, 2020, at approximately 5:00 a.m., the defendant stabbed the victim multiple times inside of a corner store located on East Ferry Street near Jefferson Avenue in the City of Buffalo.

“The defendant and the victim were known to each other and involved in a dispute over money related to damage to a vehicle. The victim, 29-year-old Ronald Green of Buffalo, died from his injuries a short distance away from the scene of the crime,” Flynn said in a statement. “The defendant fled to Charlotte, North Carolina where he was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service on January 31, 2020. He was extradited back to Western New York to face prosecution.”

Turner pleaded guilty to one count of Manslaughter in the First Degree (Class “B” violent felony) on April 18, 2022.
