Man Sentenced In New London Random Killing

NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) _ One of six young men convicted in the random killing of a pizza cook in New London has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for manslaughter, while four others face sentencing hearings this week.

Nineteen-year-old Rahshad Perry learned his fate Monday in New London Superior Court after prosecutors showed photos of victim Matthew Chew that were arranged into a slide show by his parents, Marilyn and Rick Chew of Arcadia, Calif. Perry apologized to the family.

Perry and five other teens beat and fatally stabbed 25-year-old Matthew Chew as he walked home from work in October 2010. Testimony showed the teens were “bored” and decided to attack someone at random.

One defendant is already serving a 35-year prison sentence. The four remaining sentencings are set for Tuesday through Friday.
