WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Westchester County District Attorney Miriam E. Rocah announced today that a Yonkers man was sentenced to 21 years in state prison for the fatal stabbing of 47-year-old Yonkers resident Ruben Martinez Campos.

DA Rocah said: “Today, we have ensured a violent individual, who ruthlessly took the life of a man trying to protect his business and livelihood, is off our streets. Our thoughts are with Mr. Campos’s family and the Yonkers community.”

The defendant, Tyrese Shubrick, 24, pleaded guilty on April 19 to Manslaughter in the First Degree, a felony. In addition to his term of incarceration, he has been sentenced to five years of post-release supervision.

On April 20, 2021, at approximately 5:40 p.m., the defendant threatened the victim with a knife at his store on Main Street in Yonkers before taking a hat. When confronted by the victim outside of the store, the defendant used a knife to stab the victim two times in the chest. The victim’s wife witnessed the incident, which was also captured on surveillance video.

The victim was transported to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, where he died from his injuries.

During the investigation, the Yonkers Police Department identified, located, and arrested the defendant on April 21, 2021, at Elmsford Village Court, where he was appearing on another case. The knife was never recovered.

In a statement read in court, Mr. Campos’s wife said: “You senselessly took my love’s life without any reason in front of me.... This has been a nightmare from which I have not been able to wake up from.... He didn’t deserve what you did to him.”

The defendant was also sentenced to two years of state prison, which will run concurrently to his 21-year prison sentence, for a separate stabbing incident.

The case was before Judge James McCarty in Westchester County Court, and prosecuted by Bureau Chief Jonathan Strongin and Senior Assistant District Attorney Adrian Murphy, both of the Trials and Investigations Division. New Rochelle Branch Chief Craig Ascher assisted with the case.
