A heartbroken woman whose brother died following a Brooklyn rooftop robbery told the two men involved in his death that she hoped “his screams ... haunts you forever.”
“I hope you think about what happened to my brother, hope you have no peace of mind, hope his screams of terror and sounds of his body splattering on the courtyard haunts you forever," said Robert Riechl's angry sister, Ingrid, in a victim impact statement.
Keston Jones and Ruben Santiago — who were sentenced to 15 years in prison — were convicted after a bench trial before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Joel Goldberg for spraying an unknown substance into Riechl's eyes before stealing $2,000 cash and an iPhone.
Before the robbery, Santiago was alerted that his younger cousin was allegedly groped by Riechl and he wanted to “teach him a lesson,” according to trial testimony.
Ingrid denied the molestation allegations or that her brother was an alcoholic.
