According to Queens District Attorney Richard Brown, Emmanuel Body, 28 borrowed Albert Johnson’s SUV in August of 2005. When he returned the vehicle, an argument ensured and Brody fatally shot Johnson. He was apprehended in August 2006.
Brody was convicted in September of second-degree murder and second- and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
“Unfortunately an argument between two friends escalated out of control resulting in the death of Mr. Johnson,” said Brown. “This sentence is a measure of justice for the victim’s family following what can only be described as a senseless and devastating loss."
