Die Hafstrafe des Mörders des Herrn Jacob Gerstle wurde diese Woche ausgesprochen, wie Vosizneias berichtet:
A 6-foot-6 career mugger who bludgeoned an 81-year-old Orthodox Jew to death while robbing him in his Washington Heights elevator was slammed today with a maximum sentence of 25 years to life for the brutal murder.
“I’ve tried dozens of murder cases in my career,” the judge said in throwing the book at the hulking murderer. “This is one of the most brutal crimes I’ve had to face.
“To attack a frail, elderly man in an elevator is every citizen’s nightmare.”
