A Geneva man accused of killing a suspected burglary in 2017 could be heading back to court in March.
Jeff Salone Jr., was found guilty in 2019 of manslaughter, but was acquitted of that count in the death of Jawuan Brumfield. Despite being sentenced to 25 years in prison – Salone will have another shot in court.
He’s being represented by James Nobles. The case will be prosecuted by Jason MacBride.
MacBride and Geneva police believe Brumfield, after climbing a ladder, was pulled into Salone’s apartment through a window while Brumfield was trying to commit a burglary, according to the Finger Lakes Times.
Prosecutors say Salone and others beat Brumfield for approximately 20 minutes before police arrived.
