A mentally ill man who admitted killing his sister and his father?s friend and leaving their bodies in the trunk of a car in Goldens Bridge was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years to life in prison.
The Supreme Court judge imposed the minimum sentence under an agreement when Gerald DiDomenico Jr. pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in March. DiDomenico was treated several times for mental illness and his lawyer considered an insanity defense. However, he took the plea after one of the victim?s family members agreed to the minimum sentence.
Police say Darla DiDomenico, 23 and Joseph Fazzinga, 55 were killed with a shotgun at close range on January 7, 2005 at the DiDomenico?s home in North Salem. The bodies were found in the trunk of Fazzinga?s car at the Goldens Bridge train station six days later. Prosecutors say Gerald DiDomenico had moved the bodies into the trunk and drove the car to the station and even put money in the parking meter. No clear motive for the killings was ever established.Related Information Victim's brother arrested in Goldens Bridge bodies case Two bodies found in trunk of car at Goldens Bridge train station
