New Rochelle man indicted in murder of his young daughter


WHITE PLAINS – A Westchester County grand jury indicted a New Rochelle man on a murder charge in the death of his daughter.

Neil White, 47, was charged with killing Gabrielle White, 7, on June 6, 2017.

According to the indictment, at 3:05 p.m. on April 6, 2017, the nanny who helped to care for the child came to their home at 3 Arbor Glen where both White and his daughter lived. She went to the third floor of the home and called out to both of them. White, who was bleeding from both wrists from self-inflicted knife cuts, left the master bedroom. The nanny became frightened, fled the house and called the child’s mother and police.

New Rochelle officers arrived and found White in the master bedroom and Gabrielle in her bedroom, dead under a blanket.  The medical examiner’s office determined the Gabrielle was smothered to death.

White was later taken to the hospital where his wounds were treated.

If convicted, White could face 25 years to life in prison.
