Brooklyn Butcher Gets 25 Years Added to His Two-Century Sentence

NEW YORK (AP) — A Sheepshead Bay man already sentenced to 200 years in prison for killing four people in a stabbing and carjacking rampage in Brooklyn and New York City has received an additional 25 years.

Maksim Gelman was sentenced Thursday for slashing a Manhattan subway passenger at the end of the bloody crime spree.

Like he did in Kings County Supreme Court where he taunted his murder victim’s boyfriend, Gelman interrupted and taunted the Manhattan victim, whom he injured. Joseph Lozito told Gelman he has “hell to look forward to.”

Gelman pleaded guilty last month to attempted murder.

Separately, Gelman admitted in Brooklyn to a string of killings and other violence that started with an argument over using his mother’s car. He killed his stepfather, a woman whose friends have said Gelman was obsessed with her, the woman’s mother and a pedestrian Gelman ran over.
