Bronx DA: Bronx Man Sentenced to 15 Years in Prison for Deadly Stabbing


Defendant Pleaded Guilty to Manslaughter


Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark today announced that a Bronx man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the 2019 stabbing death of a man in the Olinville section of the Bronx.


District Attorney Clark said, “Responding officers found the victim in a pool of blood in an apartment building stairwell. The victim was a father and leaves behind a young girl. The defendant’s guilty plea will not bring her father back, but the perpetrator of this attack is being held accountable for his deadly actions.”


District Attorney Clark said the defendant, Terrance Caudle, 33 was sentenced on May 18, 2022 to 15 years in prison and five years post-release supervision by Bronx Supreme Court Justice Ralph Fabrizio. The defendant pleaded guilty to first-degree Manslaughter on March 15, 2022.


According to the investigation, on June 30, 2019 at 3677 White Plains Road, the defendant repeatedly stabbed O’Brian Maxwell in the neck inside the victim’s apartment after a dispute involving borrowed clothing. Maxwell ran out of the apartment and collapsed in the stairwell where he was found bleeding and unresponsive.


The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Burim Namani, Counsel in the  Homicide Bureau, under the supervision of Christine Scaccia, Chief of the Homicide Bureau, and under the overall supervision of James Brennan, Deputy Chief of the Trial Division, and Theresa Gottlieb, Chief of the Trial Division.


District Attorney Clark thanked NYPD Detective Michael Simpson of the 47th Precinct.
