WHITE PLAINS – A Yonkers man is in the Westchester County Jail on murder charged in connection with death of a neighbor in that city.
Karmel Mills, 40, was arraigned on Monday and charged with two counts of murder and one count each of burglary, and strangulation.
Police were called to 52 Ravine Avenue in Yonkers after 7 p.m. on January 18 where they found the door to David Pinnock’s apartment broken off the hinges and Mills choking him. Police ordered him to stop, which he did and the victim, who had no pulse, was rushed to Westchester Medical Center where he was placed in an induced coma and attached to a ventilator.
Pinnock had suffered blunt force trauma, kidney and lung failure as well as brain damage. He was removed from the ventilator and died on February 6.
If convicted of murder, Mills could face 25 years to life in state prison.
