A Staten Island man faces seven years in prison for breaking into six Queens commercial buildings and snatching nearly $40,000.

A Bayside man who admitted last month to killing his 4-month-old son inside their residence nearly two years ago could spend most of the next two decades in a prison cell.

Jagsheer Singh, 28, of Brian Crescent entered a guilty plea on Oct. 21 to charges of second-degree manslaughter and first-degree assault for the death of Nevin Janduher Singh on the night of Dec. 19, 2014. He was ordered on Tuesday, Nov. 15, to serve concurrent prison terms of 18 years for the assault charge and five to 15 years for the manslaughter charge.

 

According to Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown, Jagsheer Singh struck Nevin Janduher in the head with a foreign object sometime between 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 19, 2014, and early the next morning. The abuse occurred while Jagsheer’s wife and Nevin’s mother, a radiologist at a local hospital, was at work.

“As a father, the defendant’s job was to protect and nurture his helpless, innocent son,” Brown said. “Instead, the defendant assaulted his son, causing skull fractures and widespread brain injury and ultimately resulting in the child’s death.”

When she returned home, she found Nevin in the crib unresponsive and having difficulty breathing. He was first taken to Flushing Hospital and later transferred to Cohen’s Children Hospital. Tests revealed that Nevin suffered multiple severe skull fractures, retinal hemorrhages and brain injuries due to oxygen deprivation. Nevin died several days later.
