A man who hacked his wife with a meat cleaver was sentenced to 13 years in prison Wednesday, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said. Ming Guang Huang, 32, attacked his then-23-year-old-wife on a Chinatown sidewalk in February 2013, court documents show. She suffered deep gashes to her head, neck and body.

DA Vance announced the sentencing of Ming Guang Huang to 13 years in state prison for attacking his then-23-year-old wife with a meat cleaver in Chinatown in February 2013, leaving her covered with deep gashes on her head, neck, and body. On December 14, 2016, the defendant pleaded guilty to Assault in the First Degree.

A pair of grifters who bashed a Manhattan homeowner into unconsciousness and then looted his apartment last year were sentenced to prison Monday, the DA’s office said. Officials said Sarah Napier, 28, of Florida, and Tracey Williams, 28, of Ohio, were in the city one night in February 2016 posing as ConEd workers, and knocked on the East Harlem man's home pretending to ask about gas hook-ups and lead emissions in the building.

DA Vance announced the sentencing of Sarah Napier, to 7 years in state prison and Tracey Williams, to 9 years in state prison for attacking a man in his East Harlem home after entering under the guise of taking a survey. On December 15, 2016, the defendants pleaded guilty in New York State Supreme Court to Burglary in the First Degree. 

“New York deserves the fairest, safest, and most forward-looking criminal justice system in the nation. If enacted, the justice agenda set forth by Governor Cuomo will bring that vision within reach. From raising the age of criminal responsibility, to reducing pre-trial detention and wrongful convictions, to empowering prosecutors to combat cybercrime, these proposals would increase effectiveness and confidence in our justice system, without sacrificing public safety.

 

“In 2016, I was proud to partner with Governor Cuomo to fund the recording of police interrogations across the State, as well as college courses for incarcerated New Yorkers who will soon re-enter our communities. I commend the Governor for making comprehensive criminal justice reform a priority this year, and look forward to working with our legislative partners in the months ahead.”
