Mineola, NY - July 7, 2014 - Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced the sentencing today of a Freeport man for brutally stabbing a 21-year-old man to death during a fight in October 2012.
 
Henry Martinez-Ramos, 26 of Freeport, was sentenced today by Nassau County Court Judge Teresa Corrigan to 25 years to life in prison. Martinez-Ramos was convicted by a Nassau County jury in May 2014 of Murder in the 2nd Degree (an A felony), Tampering with Physical Evidence (an E felony), and Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 4th Degree (an A misdemeanor) in the brutal stabbing of a 21-year-old in 2012. He was acquitted of Trespassing (a violation).The jury deliberated for approximately five hours at the end of a 10-day trial.
 
“This defendant’s utter disregard for human life is clear from the brutality of his crime and the multiple injuries he inflicted upon his victim,” DA Rice said. “I am pleased that this sentence will mean he will no longer be able to pose a threat to anyone on our streets for a long time to come.”
 
DA Rice said that on Oct. 20, 2012, Martinez-Ramos stabbed his victim approximately 86 times in his head, face, neck, chest and hand during an altercation along a secluded one-way street in Freeport. Martinez-Ramos also dragged his victim’s body to nearby railroad tracks and dropped multiple railroad ties above it to conceal it.
 
Martinez-Ramos was arrested by the Freeport Police Department the next day.The victim was known to Martinez-Ramos, with the two having a history of insults and verbal altercations between each other.
 
Assistant District Attorney Daryl Levy of DA Rice’s Major Offense Bureau is prosecuting the case.Martinez-Ramos is represented by Dana Grossblat, Esq.
