There is finally some justice being done for Jordan Neely.
The 24-year-old marine, Daniel Penny, who put a 30-year-old mentally ill homeless man, Neely in a fatal chokehold on a New York City subway earlier this month will face second-degree manslaughter charges.
As reported on the NY Post, Daniel is expected to be charged in a criminal complaint with second-degree manslaughter according to the report. Official conformation on the charges will occur during the arraignment which is expected Friday afternoon (May 12).
