Mastermind Behind Murder of Menachem Stark Z”L Handed up to 25 Years in Jail

The alleged mastermind was convicted Monday of the murder and kidnapping of Menachem Stark Z”L, finally concluding trials that, after more than 5 years, has resulted in guilty verdicts or pleas from all four men believed to have been involved in the horrific crime.

Erskin Felix, 40, of Crown Heights, Brooklyn was convicted of first-degree kidnapping, second-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence following a jury trial before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Danny Chun. He faces up to 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced on May 1, 2019.
