May 4, 2016 -- Westchester County Acting District Attorney James A. McCarty announced that Jahkim McGhee (DOB 07/02/94) of 544 Locust Avenue, Port Chester, New York, pled guilty today to:

  • one count of Manslaughter in the First Degree

relating to the death of Anthony Guglielmo.

“For over two years, Port Chester police and prosecutors relentlessly worked this case. While initial speculation focused on the victim’s daughter, during the investigation, detectives developed information that defendant was involved. Over the next two years, investigators interviewed and reinterviewed defendant. Finally, defendant admitted to climbing in the window of the victim’s home and stabbing the victim as he was sleeping,” said Acting District Attorney James McCarty.

On Sunday Sept. 11, 2011, at approximately 5:30 a.m., Port Chester police received a 911 call of a Burglary in progress at 235 Mortimer Street and that a person had been stabbed.

The call was made by the victim’s then 14-year-old daughter, Nicole Guglielmo, who stated that her father had been stabbed by the intruder.

EMS and Police responded and found the victim lying on the floor of the living room in a massive pool of blood.

A large butcher knife was on the floor and the victim had a stab wound to the chest.

Port Chester police detectives initiated an investigation along with the Westchester County Police who processed the crime scene.

Police, prosecutors and investigators from the District Attorneys office continued to press the case, developing information as to the identity of the perpetrator.

It was revealed that during 2010 and early 2011, the victim and his daughter had lived in an apartment across the street from the defendant.

During defendant’s plea before the Hon. Barbara Zambelli, who has made a sentence promise of 20 years in state prison, defendant admitted to acting alone when he stabbed the victim.

Sentencing will take place on Sept. 6, 2016.

Assistant District Attorney Perry Perrone, Chief of the Homicide Bureau, and Assistant District Attorney Kerrie Williams of the Superior Court Trial Division prosecuted the case.
