Clifton man sentenced in beating death

29 07 2007

What happened: A Clifton man was sentenced to 13 years in prison Thursday for beating his roommate to death during an argument over the TV remote control and cleanliness of their apartment. Steve Schiro, 45, will have to serve at least 11½ years of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole. “I don’t think Mr. Schiro intended to kill the victim, but he did,” said Mike De Marco, Passaic County senior assistant prosecutor. He noted that alcohol played a part in Schiro’s fatal beating of 63-year-old Mohsin Oskoui. Superior Court Judge Randolph Subryan lamented the fact that a simple argument could lead to such violence. “No sentence I impose could ease the pain in your hearts,” he said to three of Oskoui’s relatives who sat in court. One of them, a woman, ran wailing out of the courtroom.
