Yonkers man sentenced in bludgeoning murder of neighbor


WHITE PLAINS – A Yonkers man was sentenced in Westchester County Court on Thursday to 17 years to life in state prison for murdering his neighbor with a baseball bat in 2016.

Karmel Mills, 42, was sentenced by Judge Barry Warhit in the January 19, 2016 killing of David Pinnock at 52 Ravine Avenue in Yonkers, where the victim lived.

The two men were neighbors in the same apartment building and had an ongoing dispute, authorities said.

When police were called to the scene, they found the door of Pinnock’s apartment broken off the hinges with Mills choking him inside. The police ordered Mills off Pinnock and he complied. Mills, who was bleeding from the head, was placed under arrest and taken to a local hospital.

Pinnock had no pulse and police performed CPR. Arriving EMTs were able to resuscitate him and he was transported to Westchester Medical Center when he was placed in a medically-induced coma and attached to a ventilator. He had suffered blunt force trauma, kidney and lung failure, and brain damage.   He died after being removed from the ventilator on February 6, 2016.
