Bail Denied in Belt Parkway Slaying

More updates in the attack that happened in the Plumb Beach rest stop are off the Belt Parkway

Bail was denied Wednesday for Anthony Fortunato, one of three remaining defendants facing trial in the October death of openly gay Michael Sandy.

Fortunato’s family had raised $1.3 million in hope bail would be granted, but Judge Jill Konviser-Levine of the New York State Supreme Court in Brooklyn decided not to allow Fortunato to go.

“We are pleased that Judge Konviser-Levine has today ensured that Fortunato will indeed be present to face the consequences of his and his accomplices’ vile plan, and we can now turn our attention to our primary interest — seeing justice for Michael, justice for his family, justice for his friends, and justice for this community,” Clarence Patton, executive director for New York’s Anti-Violence Project, said in a written statement.

Fortunato and his accomplices allegedly lured Sandy on Oct. 13 to a remote location in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, where they attacked and attempted to rob him. As Sandy attempted to escape the attack, he ran onto the Belt Parkway, where he was struck by an oncoming vehicle. The driver fled and has yet to come forward.

Sandy, 29, was removed from life support five days after the attack and died with family and friends beside him.
