A widow and her three children tood in a hallway outside a courtroom in Brooklyn where jurors would decide whether convicted cop killer Ronell Wilson will get the needle or spend the rest of life behind bars for killing her husband, NYPD detective James Nemorin, and his partner Rodney Andrews.
"My daughter was a baby in my arms and my boys were little kids in Disney World a week before my husband was murdered in Staten Island, " Rose Nemorin said Monday, nodding toward her daughter, 12, and sons, 17 and 15. "But I wanted them to be here today. I wanted them to hear that their father died as a hero."
In the prosecution’s opening arguments, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim McGovern laid out a powerful case for the death penalty. He detailed how undercover cops Nemorin and Andrews met with Wilson and three others to buy an illegal gun for $1, 200. But Wilson — on the night of March 10, 2003 — suspected that the two men might be cops.
McGovern said Wilson sat in the back seat and ordered Andrews to drive. Once they reached St. Pauls Ave., he told him to park. Then he placed the muzzle of a .44-caliber pistol to the base of Nemorin’s head and fired a hollow-point slug into his brain.Anthony DelMundo/New York Daily News
Cheryl Wilson, mother of convicted cop-killer Ronell Wilson, leaves the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, in Brooklyn, after a resentencing hearing for her son.
“Boom!” McGovern shouted to the jury.
Then, he said, Wilson placed the barrel at the base of Andrews’ skull and shouted, “Where’s the money? Where’s the s- at?”
As Andrews begged for his life, Wilson fired again.
James Nemorin, pictured, was 36 and an NYPD undercover detective when Ronell Wilson shot him and another detective in the head in 2003 during an undercover gun buy. Wilson was convicted for the crimes and sentenced to death.
Then McGovern asked the jury to vote for the death penalty because the murder was premeditated.
“I want to see the death penalty, ” Rose Nemorin said after McGovern was done. “I want justice for my husband and my children’s father.”
Rose Nemorin and her children listened to defense attorney Richard Jasper plead for 31-year-old Ronell Wilson’s life. He presented a tale of woe about being raised by a crack- and booze-addicted mother in the Stapleton projects.
