2 sentenced in deadly shooting

WHITE PLAINS -

Two young men have been sentenced to prison in the fatal 2016 shooting of Dominique Hospie in White Plains.

Aaron George, 22, was sentenced to 17 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to what prosecutors called the cold-blooded execution of Hospie. His accomplice, Michael Djukic, 21, was sentenced to nine years behind bars for being the getaway driver.

George pleaded guilty to gunning down Hospie near North Kensico Avenue. Djukic pleaded guilty to driving George around while looking for the victim.

Officials say it was a revenge killing because Hospie shot George in 2011. Hospie spent almost three years in prison for the shooting and was released in 2014.

While Hospie's mother said she forgives the suspects, she said she questions if they really understood what they did.

"How do you sleep at night, knowing your actions killed my son," said Yolanda Donnigan.
