Albany, NY - March 23, 2017 - A Suffolk County jury has convicted a Manhattan man of murder in the second degree for shooting a Brooklyn man to death in West Babylon in 2009, Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota said.
 
Deliberations began Monday (3/20) in the trial of Daniel Greenspan, 30, who was arrested in 2015 for the murder of Michael E. Sinclair, a Brooklyn resident.
 
During the trial, jurors learned the victim was lured to Long Island by 28 year old Noriella Santos, a Bronx woman who had sexual relations with both the defendant and Sinclair.
 
When Greenspan contracted herpes, Santos told Greenspan she contracted the disease from Sinclair.  Seeking revenge, Greenspan then directed Santos to lure the victim to Long Island under false pretenses.  Greenspan shot Sinclair three times in the head and once in the chest on Kellum Street in West Babylon at 4:00 AM on January 31, 2009. Police, summoned to the scene by 911 reports of gunfire, found Sinclair in the roadway and he died at Good Samaritan Hospital.
 
Greenspan will be sentenced April 27 by State Supreme Court Justice William Condon.  He faces a sentence of 25 years to life in prison.
