Man turns himself in following fatal beating on Vernon Blvd


Feb. 22, 2015 By Christian Murray

The suspect involved in the fatal beating of a 32-year-old man on Vernon Blvd Friday has turned himself into police.

Kaheem Addison, a 29-year-old from Huntington Station in Long Island, surrendered to detectives at the 108 police Precinct station house on Saturday.

Addision, who faces manslaughter charges, beat Jose Antonio Cocuyo-Malaga near the corner of 50th Avenue and Vernon Blvd at 2:30 am Friday. The victim’s head hit the pavement.

The incident occurred near a bodega when the victim got into car that he believed was a livery cab. The driver who was angered by this jumped out of the car and thumped Cocuyo-Malaga, knocking him to the ground.

There were witnesses who saw the event and ran to the 108 precinct station house–about a block away–to alert police, according to the NYPD.

Cocuyo-Malage lay unconscious on the side walk near Vernon Wine & Liquors suffering from head trauma. He was transported to Bellevue Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Addision was the sole suspect– despite initial reports that there were two.
