61-year old Mamadou Diallo was arrested and charged with manslaughter after beating and killing a man who broke into his home and allegedly raped his wife at around 10 pm May 30th in the Morrisania section. He was later on released on his own recognizance.
According to reports, 43-year old Earl Nash allegedly ripped the clothes of Diallo’s 51-year old wife and smashed her head into a chair before managing to cut loose and called her husband on the phone. According to their neighbors, Nash had been acting aggressively to other women in that building.
Diallo was outside the building when he received the call. He then caught up with the suspect on the 6th floor hallway of 1240 Washington Ave. The 61-year old reportedly assaulted Nash with a tire iron. On the other hand, Nash attacked Diallo with a leather belt.
Cops found Nash unconscious and unresponsive with severe trauma to his head and body. He was rushed to the Lincoln Hospital in critical condition. He eventually died.
Prior to his death, Nash had been arrested 19 times and was only released from jail last year after nine years in prison. He was charged with bribery and drug possession.
