Man sentenced after beating the boss to death with shovel

MONTICELLO, new york – a New York man who admitted to beating his boss to death with a shovel has been sentenced to 21 years to life in prison.

Thirty-seven-year-old Rickey Bolden, of Monticello, previously pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in a plea agreement. The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports he was sentenced Friday.

The authorities say that Bolden was employed as a maintenance worker at the Pardess Bungalow Colony in the town of Thompson when he took a shovel to kill 61-year-old John Ferrari, of Riverdale, New Jersey, in September 2016.

The police found a Ferrari’s body on the property two days later, during the investigation of a missing person to report.

Bolden apologized to the members of Ferrari’s family in court. As part of the plea, Bolden has waived his right to appeal in the case.
