Port Chester Man Sentenced in Fatal Home Invasion
A man who admitted to fatally stabbing his Hudson Valley neighbor during a home invasion will spend many years in jail.
On Tuesday in Westchester County Court, 23-year-old Jahkim McGhee of Port Chester was sentenced to 20 years in prison for killing Anthony Guglielmo.
In May, McGhee admitted in court he climbed through the window of Guglielmo’s Port Chester home and stabbed him as he was sleeping in Sept. of 2011.
The victim’s 14-year-old daughter called 911 to report her father was stabbed by an intruder.
Responding officers found Guglielmo lying on the floor of his living room in a massive pool of blood from an apparent stab wound to the chest. A large butcher knife was found on the floor near the victim.
According to the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office, a police investigation revealed that McGhee lived in an apartment across the street from the victim and his daughter in 2010 and early 2011.
During his plea, McGhee said he was acting alone when he fatally stabbed Guglielmo.
