According to the report, Andrew Cairns, 50, will serve 14 to 30 years in prison, a sentence determined by the plea bargain with prosecutors. He will then serve 10 years probation and undergo treatment for substance abuse and mental health issues.
Marie Zienkewicz was struck and killed by a bullet fired by a police rifle when she opened her door to assist her neighbor and Cairns' girlfriend. Police believed she was Cairns and fire at her. The Bucks County district attorney said that Cairns' actions created the situation that caused Zienkewicz's death.
