“This sentence sends the message that in New York, cold cases do not go forgotten,” said District Attorney Bragg. “DNA evidence coupled with an anonymous tip received years after these horrifying crimes of escalating violence led to Rashaun Kelley’s arrest, and ultimately, to today’s sentencing. I would like to thank the attorneys in my Office for their diligent work on this prosecution and trial, and the NYPD officers who investigated and made this cold case arrest. Most of all, I thank the three survivors for their courage in testifying at trial, and hope today’s prison sentence helps close this chapter in their lives.”
