POUGHKEEPSIE – A former Newburgh man who is serving a lengthy prison sentence on a manslaughter conviction in connection with the death of a woman in Poughkeepsie, has lost his appeal.

Aladdin Sanchez, 27, was convicted six years ago of manslaughter in connection with the shooting death of Ines Amigon, 44, of Poughkeepsie outside a city bar on June 15, 2013.

Sanchez’s first appeal was rejected by the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court in 2017, but he later filed new court papers claiming ineffective assistance of appellate counsel.

In a July 1, 2020 decision, the appellate court rejected Sanchez’s latest appeal.

According to prosecutors during his Dutchess County Court trial, after Sanchez was beaten up, he grabbed a .38 caliber revolver from a car and gave it to a friend, who then shot and killed Amigon and wounded two others.
