A man charged with manslaughter for putting an agitated New York City subway rider in a fatal chokehold has been indicted by a grand jury, a step that will allow the criminal case to continue.
The former U.S. Marine, 24, was videotaped putting Neely in a chokehold on the NYC subway on May 1. He surrendered to police ahead of his arraignment on Friday and was released on $100,000 bail.
The 30-year-old homeless man died from a chokehold by another passenger on the NYC subway. Advocates say the city's policies and rhetoric concerning people who are homeless are dangerous and false.
