NAILED: Keith Phoenix Joins Hakim Scott With 37-Year Sentence For Hate Crime Killing of Jose Sucuzhanay

Sentenced today to 37 years, Jose Sucuzhanay’s murderer Keith Phoenix (on right), who together with Hakim Scott (also sentenced to 37 years) attacked Jose and his brother Romel in December 2008 after thinking they were a gay couple and then laughed about it, went “beyond the comprehension of any civilized person,” according to New York Judge Patricia DiMango.

Phoenix told the court: “I want to offer my deepest, humblest apology for the outcome of that night. I swear to God that is not what I intended to happen.”
