A New York judge dismissed Penny’s attempt to have the case dismissed. Neeley died after Penny put him in a chokehold onboard the Manhattan-bound F train subway in May. 

Witnesses reported Neely, a 30-year-old homeless Black man, was screaming at people and behaving erratically on the subway.  Penny approached him and applied a fatal chokehold from behind.

Neely’s background reveals a life marked by homelessness and mental health struggles, tracing back to the tragic death of his mother when he was just 14.

His family’s lawyers say that Neely’s mental health decline began following the traumatic incident, shaping his adulthood marked by periods of homelessness and mental health treatment.
