The two men involved in the “revenge murder” of 2010 Peekskill High School graduate Dominique Hospie were sentenced to prison in county court in White Plains Wednesday.
Aaron George, 22, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for the April 2016 murder of Hospie, got 17 years to life. Michael Djukic, 21, who acted as George’s getaway driver, received nine years.
Police said that at approximately 11:24 a.m. on Sunday, April 17, 2016, Djukic drove George in a Chrysler Pacifica to the area of 91 North Kensico Avenue in White Plains.
Once there, Djukic waited in the vehicle as George exited the vehicle, approached the 23-year-old Hospie, who was on Kensico Avenue, and used a handgun to shoot him multiple times. George then ran back and re-entered the vehicle where Djukic was waiting in the driver’s seat and the two immediately drove off. Hospie was taken to Westchester Medical Center with gunshot wounds to the hand and back. He later died in surgery.

White Plains police say George killed Hospie in retaliation for a 2011 incident in which Hospie shot and injured George in a White Plains park. As punishment for that crime, Hospie spent almost three years in state prison on a felony second-degree assault conviction and was released in 2014.
