DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- One of the more infamous cases involving Dobbs Ferry was in the news again as the New York State Court of Appeals upheld the murder conviction of former New York City police officer Richard DiGuglielmo.
DiGuglielmo was convicted of depraved indifference murder for shooting and killing a man who was fighting with his father outside their family deli. The family business, the Venice Delicatessen, is located in Dobbs Ferry at 225 Ashford Avenue. DiGuglielmo shot 37-year-old Charles Campbell, who was wielding a bat, three times after Campbell was fighting with DiGuglielmo's father over a parking spot dispute in the deli's parking lot.
The court ruling was unanimous on Thursday as it said it found "no reasonable possibility" that the court failed to disclose witness statements that had changed and contributed to the guilty verdict.
DiGuglielmo served 11 years, but was then released from prison in 2008 when his case was overturned after an appeal. Just 20 months later though the court reversed the decision and sent him back to prison in 2010. That is the decision that was upheld Thursday and DiGuglielmo is currently in prison serving the remainder of his 20-years-to life sentence.
