The man who killed Isaac Kadare z”l, a 59-year-old frum father of four who was shot in the head and then had his throat slit inside an Amazing 99 Cents Deals store in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, on August 2, 2012, will be going away for a long time.

The Daily Mail reports that Salvatore Perrone was found guilty of three counts of second-degree murder and faces up to 75 years to life.
The serial killer, a former salesman, was linked to the three murders through matching shell casings left in all crime scenes, and through DNA and other forensic evidence, Brooklyn DA Ken Thompson announced, Daily Mail reports.
A jury trial was held in front of the Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Alan Marrus. Perrone will be sentenced on March 4.
