BRONX MAN SENTENCED TO 25 YEARS IN PRISON

FOR 2012 KILLING OF HIS MOTHER

 

Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark today announced that a Bronx man who fatally shot and beat his mother when he was 16 years old has been sentenced to 25 years in prison with five years of post-release supervision.

 

District Attorney Clark said, “Tihesha Savage was like many mothers who worked to provide for her children only for her son to kill her while she was sleeping. The defendant will now spend 25 years in prison for this horrific act.”

 

District Attorney Clark said that the defendant, Dee Jackson, 20, of 1447 Macombs Avenue in the Mount Eden neighborhood, was sentenced today, June 23, 2016, before Bronx Supreme Court Justice Alvin Yearwood to 25 years in prison with five years of post-release supervision. Jackson pleaded guilty on May 16, 2016 to first-degree Manslaughter.

 

According to the investigation, early on September 26, 2012, Jackson and his mother, Tihesha Savage, 34, were having an argument in their apartment. At about 7 a.m., as Savage slept in her bed and with Jackson’s 7-year-old sister present in the apartment, Jackson entered his mother’s room and shot her with a pistol.

 

Jackson then proceeded to beat his mother with a wooden baseball bat. Jackson placed his mother’s body in a plastic bin, which he placed outside of their apartment.

 

The case was prosecuted by Senior Trial Assistant District Attorney Paul Rosenfeld of the 30/40 Trial Bureau.
