BREAKING: Verdict In Death of 84th Precinct Officer

A Brooklyn jury has just returned a verdict of not guilty against George Villanueva on a charge that he murdered 84th Precinct Officer Alain Schaberger last year. Villanueva was, however, convicted on a charge of aggravated manslaughter, and his status as a repeat felony offender may result in a life sentence.

Officer Schaberger fell over the railing at 45 St. Marks Place while assisting in Villanueva’s arrest. At issue was whether Schaberger was deliberately pushed or accidentally fell during a struggle.

    Not guilty of murder but guilty of manslaughter. Very misleading headline reporting here. Are we the NY Post??

    Really, drop the “not guilt” part so it reads “Verdict In Death of 84th Precinct Officer”.

    No, we’re not. The top charge was Murder, and the “headline” referred to the verdict rendered on the top charge. The text immediately below clearly explained that. Your refund is in the mail since I wasted your time misleading you into making you read what lay below, the change has been made.
