Marine Veteran Charged With Second-Degree Manslaughter Over Death of Aggressive Subway Vagrant

In connection with the subway chokehold death of Jordan Neely, Marine veteran Daniel Penny was reportedly charged Friday in Manhattan Criminal Court on one count of second-degree manslaughter.

Penny, a 24-year-old college student, was granted freedom by the court on a $100,000 bail package approved by the prosecution and provided by bondsman Ira Judelson.

After choking the unstable homeless man to death on a southbound F train on May 1, Penny surrendered himself into police early on Friday.

The young guy, who is one week away from receiving his college diploma, acted to defend himself and other passengers who were being intimidated, according to Penny’s attorney, Thomas Kenniff.

Penny can spend up to 15 years in jail if she is found guilty of the crime.

Neely, who had a mental disorder, reportedly acted violently and yelled at other passengers in the train vehicle, according to a freelance journalist who videotaped the altercation.

The city’s medical examiner determined that the neck compression was the cause of death.

Neely looked to be progressively losing consciousness as Penny hauled him to the ground from behind and put him in a chokehold.
