Officials confirmed Frank Keogh of Yonkers pleaded guilty to second-degree murder earlier this month in Rockland County Court after stabbing his victim Eric Leopold in Nanuet more than a dozen times outside his home in July 2016.

Keogh is scheduled to be sentenced in November, where he will face a term of between 15 years to life in prison.

Following the assault on his victim, Keogh was initially charged with attempted murder after being arrested. The charges were upgraded when his victim died from his wounds.
