2 Sentenced to Prison in Westchester Shooting Death of Man: DA

Two men were sentenced to prison Wednesday in the shooting death of a man in White Plains in 2016, authorities said.

Aaron George, 22, was sentenced to 17 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder, and Michael Djukic, 21, was sentenced to a maximum of 19 years in prison after pleading guilty, officials said.

In April 2016, Djukic was driving George to North Kensico Avenue, looking for Dominique Hospie. George approached Hospie and fired multiple times. Djukic then drove off with George.

The victim was taken to Westchester Medical Center and later died in surgery.

Deputy Bureau Chief Nadine Nagler of the Career Criminal Division and Assistant District Attorney Shameika Mathurin prosecuted the case.
