A New York judge has declined to dismiss the case of Daniel Penny, the man charged with manslaughter for killing Jordan Neely in a chokehold onboard a subway car in May, the New York County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday morning.

Penny was charged with manslaughter after putting 30-year-old Neely, a Black man experiencing homelessness, in a chokehold from behind after Neely was acting erratically on the subway, according to witnesses.

A medical examiner ruled Neely’s death a homicide caused by depression of the neck.

Defense lawyers for Penny had filed a motion for the case to be dismissed, arguing Penny did not intend to harm Neely and that several witnesses feared for their lives that day on the subway.
