NEW CITY – A Fayetteville, North Carolina man pled guilty in Rockland County Court to manslaughter in connection with the killing of Ryan Franklin in May 2020.

Shortly after 10 a.m. on May 22, 2020, Jason Jabouin, 36, shot Franklin four times, killing him.

After the murder, Jabouin fled to Maryland where he was located.

As a result of the plea, Jabouin will be sentenced in September to 20 years in prison and five years of post-release supervision.

“The events that unfolded on May 22, 2020 left many residents in the Village of Nyack in shock,” said District Attorney Thomas Walsh II. “In broad daylight, Mr. Jabouin committed a heinous act of violence, ruthlessly killing Ryan Franklin.”

The DA commended the “hard work and dedication” of the members of the Orangetown Police Department in apprehending Jabouin, who remains in the Rockland County Jail without bail.
