Once there, co-defendant Djukic waited in the vehicle as defendant George exited the vehicle, approached the victim who was on Kensico Avenue and fired a handgun multiple times at him, striking the victim. Defendant George then ran back to and re-entered the vehicle where co-defendant Djukic was waiting in the driver’s seat and the two immediately drove off.  

The victim was taken to Westchester Medical Center suffering gunshot wounds to the hand and back. He later died in surgery.

The defendant’s remand continues

He will be sentenced on July 12, 2017.

The defendant faces an indeterminate sentence of imprisonment, the maximum term must be life, and the minimum term may be not less than 15 years nor more than 25 years. Thus, the minimum sentence is 15 years to life, and the maximum sentence is 25 years to life.
