The man accused in the stray bullet shooting of a 92-year-old Bronx woman was sentenced Tuesday to 14 years behind bars.

Jamal Blair, 20, fired a single shot during a fight outside Sadie Mitchell's home in Williamsbridge in 2009.

The bullet went through Mitchell's living room window and hit her in the back.

Mitchell managed to call a friend who dialed 911, but she later died at the hospital.

Blair avoided a 25-year to life sentence by taking a manslaughter plea deal.
