Yonkers man sentenced to 20 years to life for deadly shooting
A Yonkers man was sentenced Thursday to 20 years to life in prison for a deadly shooting that divided the Latino and Arab-American communities.
Ayman Marji, 23, was convicted of murder in the shooting death of Omar Torres last year. Police say the shooting was the result of a long-running feud between the Marji and Torres families. The Torres family had staged a protest when the sentence was repeatedly delayed.
Marji?s lawyer had requested a new trial claiming a new witness was coming forward. However, because the person chose to remain anonymous, the judge promptly denied the defense's request to put the sentence on hold.
