  • two counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree, class “C” Felonies,

in the shooting death of Dominique Hospie.

On Sunday, April 17, 2016 at approximately 11:24 a.m. in the area of 91 North Kensico Ave. in White Plains, the defendant, along with co-defendant Michael Djukic, was in a Chrysler Pacifica driven by Djukic. They drove to the above mentioned location.

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 pled not guilty.

Bail was set at $500,000 cash or bond.

The defendant was remanded to the Westchester County Jail.

His next court date is June 15, 2016.

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.
