Mass. Man Sentenced for Beating of Elderly NJ Man

A Massachusetts man who attacked an elderly New Jersey resident and stole his car has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.

Monmouth County prosecutors say 31-year-old Rafael Laboy must serve roughly 34 years before becoming eligible for parole under the sentence imposed Friday. The term will run consecutive to a sentence he's serving in Massachusetts for unrelated charges.
 
The attack occurred in May 2009.
 
Laboy and his cousin were driving a stolen car when it broke down on the Garden State Parkway in Tinton Falls. They abandoned the vehicle and walked to the 82-year-old victim's home, where they asked to use his phone.
 
The cousins left when the man declined, but they soon returned and kicked in his door. They then beat him before driving off in his car.
