NEW YORK – A New York City woman who pushed a commuter to his death in front of a subway train has been sentenced to 20 years for the life behind the bars.
Melanie Liverpool was sentenced Friday to push 49-year-old Connie Watton from a subway station at the Times Square station in 2016.
Liverpool reported guilty of murdering last month.
Defense Attorney Aaron Wallenstein tells The Associated Press that Liverpool is notorious, but intends to appeal the sentence.
He called the case a "tragedy, no matter how you look at it."
Manhattan district lawyer Cyrus R. Vance Jr. condemned the murder as an "irreconcilable crime."
