NYC: Bronx man who killed younger brother for being too loud, then blamed it on three black men, sentenced to 10 years

A Bronx man who stabbed his younger brother to death, then tried to blame the killing on three made-up black men, will serve 10 years behind bars — a sentence that left the slain sibling’s family fuming.

As teared poured from his eyes and snot ran from his nose, Dennis Martinez begged Bronx Supreme Court Judge Lester Adler to give him “the lowest possible time that you can” for killing his 36-year-old brother, Jorge Montanez, saying he’ll be forever haunted by his actions.

A jury found the 53-year-old Martinez guilty of manslaughter in October.

“He was my dearest brother. I tried to raise him the best way I could. I was only 13 when he came into my life,” Martinez told Judge Lester Adler. “I loved him and I am going to miss him a great deal. I pray every day for forgiveness, for what happened.”
