WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - A Yonkers man is facing up to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to a violent felony following a fatal midday stabbing last year.

On Thursday, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino announced that 37-year-old Joseph Graham has pleaded guilty to individual counts of first-degree manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon for fatally stabbing his 49-year-old victim last year.

Shortly after 4 p.m. on Sept. 12 last year, Graham and his victim were in front of a church on South Broadway, when a physical confrontation ensued, Scarpino said. Following the incident, Graham stabbed his victim in the chest with a large knife, striking him in the heart.
