Bend man sentenced for 2019 shooting death of Sisters mother of two

A Bend man was sentenced Tuesday to nine years in prison for fatally shooting a Sisters woman after a January 2019 first date.

In December, 37-year-old Alan Porciello pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter in the death of Jenny Cashwell.

Cashwell, a 37-year-old mother of two from Sisters, was found dead in a northeast Bend apartment following a first date with Porciello on January 12th, 2019. The two met on the dating website Plenty of Fish.

Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel said Porciello called 911 to report the shooting and confessed to shooting Cashwell. He was initially charged with first-degree manslaughter.

Porciello was known to law enforcement due to a history of anger issues, possibly related to a traumatic brain injury, according to Hummel.
