Two Indicted for Murder as Hate Crime in Michael Sandy Killing

Sandy_killerA grand jury yesterday indicted John Fox, 19, and Ilya Shurov, 20, for second-degree murder as a hate crime yesterday in the tragic killing of Michael Sandy, the Brooklyn man whom they lured via the internet to a parking lot near the Belt Parkway. Fox and Shurov, along with two others, attempted to rob Sandy and then forced him into traffic where he was hit by a car which fled the scene.

Sandy spent several days in intensive care at Brookdale hospital and was removed from life support and died last Friday.
