A Yonkers man, who beat his neighbor to dying with a baseball bat in 2016, was sentenced to 17 years in state jail. 

Karmel Mills, forty two, attacked David Pinnock in Pinnock’s Ravine Avenue house on Jan. 19, 2016. Pinnock survived the preliminary assault, however died a few month later on the age of 33.

The 2 males had an ongoing dispute that led to an argument within the hallway earlier than Mills pressured his method into Pinnock’s condo, beat him with a bat and strangled him, in accordance with District Lawyer Anthony Scarpino Jr.
