NYC: “Woman who suffocated Bronx grandmother with plastic bag during robbery gets 25 years to life”

A woman who suffocated a Bronx grandmother with a plastic bag after tormenting her finally faced justice Tuesday — 15 years after the crime and three years after her first conviction was overturned.

Sparkle Daniel, 33, was sentenced to 25 years to life for killing Nellie Hocutt, 91, in her Williamsbridge home during a robbery. She was found guilty of murder March 6 at her retrial.

Daniel and accomplice Nadine Panton tied Hocutt to a chair poured red wine down her throat as they ransacked her home.

They then put a bag over Hocutt’s head and suffocated her.
