MONTICELLO, N.Y. (AP) — A New York man who admitted to beating his boss to death with a shovel has been sentenced to 21 years to life in prison.
Thirty-seven-year-old Rickey Bolden, of Monticello, previously pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in a plea agreement. The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports he was sentenced Friday.
Authorities say Bolden was employed as a maintenance worker at the Pardess Bungalow Colony in the town of Thompson when he used a shovel to kill 61-year-old John Ferrari, of Riverdale, New Jersey, in September 2016.
Police found Ferrari’s body on the property two days later while investigating a missing person report.
