A murder conviction was handed down last week against the 27-year-old Bronx man responsible for the 2013 fatal stabbing of a 69-year-old man under an elevated train station in Elmhurst.
Steven Torres, of West 195th Street was convicted of second-degree murder after a one-week jury trial before Queens Supreme Court Justice Barry A. Schwartz. When Torres is sentenced in June he faces 25 years to life in prison.
“The victim in this case was killed in a violent, unprovoked attack. The defendant fatally stabbed an innocent bystander in a senseless act of rage. The jury weighed all the evidence presented at trial and after deliberating for just 11 minutes found the defendant guilty of murder. At sentencing, the defendant faces a very long term of incarceration that will protect others and punish him for this horrible crime.”
Authorities say that the unprovoked attack on Ever Orozco, 69, of Woodside, Queens, came after he had dropped off his wife at a nearby doctor’s office and gpne to park his car near the 90th Street-Elmhurst Avenue #7 train station at approximately1:00 p.m. on September 16, 2013. He was viciously attacked and stabbed multiple times by Torres.
Mr. Orozco was transported to a local Queens hospital where he was pronounced dead.
