BROOKLYN - The ringleader of a robbery crew that killed an NYPD detective from Long Island has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Police say Nelson Morales led a five-person crew into a Brooklyn building in 2011 to rob a drug dealer.
When police responded, Det. Peter Figoski, of West Babylon, was shot and killed.
Another person that was part of the crew, Kevin Santos, was also sentenced to 25 years to life in prison today.
