NJ Man Sentenced in Deli Owner Slaying
A northern New Jersey man has been sentenced to 24 years in prison for killing a deli owner in a robbery nearly three years ago.
Daivon Brinson was convicted in May of aggravated manslaughter in the fatal stabbing of Mohinder Singh in November 2009.
Prosecutors say Brinson stabbed Singh more than a dozen times while trying to rob the Three Stooges Deli in Union Township. He allegedly left behind a trail of blood and a knife.
Brinson claimed a third man entered the deli while he was there and robbed and killed Singh.
Singh lived in an apartment next door and had come to the U.S. several years earlier while his family remained overseas.
