The Stamford Advocate reports that James Pipicelli, of Stamford, was sentenced Wednesday. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter in March for the July 2017 death of 28-year-old city resident Daniel Peretz.
Pipicelli apologized to the victim's mother, saying the death wasn't intentional. The judge said intent to kill wasn't necessary for a conviction and told Pipicelli he would have to "pay the price" for Peretz's death.
Peretz graduated in 2011 from Franklin & Marshall College in Pennsylvania and worked as an electronic trading analyst. His mother says he was on the college football team and got hooked on painkillers because of injuries.
