A notably short deliberation by a Queens jury, resulting in the conviction of a Bronx man on charges of second-degree murder, has ended with a sentence of 25 years to life imposed on the defendant.
Steven Torres, 27, of West 195th Street will now serve his time for the fatal stabbing of a 69-year-old man under the elevated tracks of the 90 Street and Elmhurst, Queens, train station on September 16th 2013.
District Attorney Brown said, “The quick deliberation by the jury speaks volumes. The defendant violently and furiously stabbed an innocent bystander. The sentence imposed by the Court… is more than warranted to punish this defendant for this horrific crime and protect society.”
According to trial testimony, at approximately 1 p.m., on September 16, 2013, the victim, Ever Orozco, 69, of Woodside, Queens, had just dropped off his wife at a nearby doctor’s office, parked his car near the 90th Street-Elmhurst Avenue #7 train station when he was viciously attacked. The victim was stabbed multiple times by Torres.
Numerous people who witnessed the slaying, jumped into action by chasing Torres. One individual took a photo of the defendant as he was running away and another took pictures when he was being apprehended.
Mr. Orozco was transported to a local Queens hospital where he was pronounced dead.
