Man Sentenced Again in Fatal Stabbing

  • Text size: + -

A Rochester man convicted twice of fatally stabbing his girlfriend in 2006, was sentenced again Wednesday morning.

Judge Frank Geraci sentenced Donyell McKenzie, 41, to 25 years-to-life in state prison. Prosecutors say McKenzie stabbed Tyffany Porter, 23, 47 times in front of her 7-year-old daughter on Rosewood Terrace.

In court Wednesday McKenzie delivered a rambling speech saying he doesn't remember all of the things he did.

Geraci called McKenzie a dangerous person who should be kept out of the community forever.

McKenzie was originally convicted of killing Porter back in 2007, but that verdict was overturned on a technicality. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
