Ridge man pleads guilty to fatally beating man
A Ridge man pleaded guilty Wednesday to beating another man to death.
Prosecutors say Vincent Dalton admitted to tying up and murdering Erik O’Connell.
It happened in a Hicksville motel room back in 2016.
The district attorney says Dalton then stole the victim's credit cards and tried to use them.
Dalton is expected to be sentenced to 23 years to life in prison.
