  • A 21 year old Brooklyn man who was convicted for shooting another man over a weave was sentenced to 23 years in prison.

    In 2011, Dennzel Holder killed Shawn Williams with three shots.

    The Daily News reports:

    “It started with a group of women who had a foolish argument over a hair weave,” said Supreme Court Justice Alan Marrus. “What a senseless tragedy.”

    The young ladies got into it when one made a comment about inappropriateness of hair extensions and the victim’s girlfriend – walking just ahead down a Crown Heights shopping strip – took offense. After bottles and punches were thrown, her rival summoned her boyfriend, Holder.

    A jury cleared Holder of murder in February, opting to convict him of manslaughter instead.
