Man gets 99 years for killing 3 on Christmas morning
Man gets 99 years in prison for killing three people and injuring two others at a go-go bar in Irvington early Christmas Day three years ago.
Imposing sentence on Anthony Field, 22, in a courtroom filled with family and friends of the man's victims, Superior Court Judge Martin G. Cronin said Field's actions that morning in 2013 reflected a sentence "that deters others from even imagining our society condones that kind of conduct."

Field was convicted by an Essex County jury in December of murder and aggravated manslaughter charges in the deaths of Woodley Daniel, Pierre Clervoyant Jr. and Mushir Cureton, as well as aggravated assault for the non-fatal shootings of two other men at Slick's Go-Go Bar at Nye Avenue and 21st Street.
Clervoyant, 34, was a manager and the son of the owner of the bar, where Daniel, 32, worked as a bouncer. Cureton, 27, was an acquaintance of Field, and was at the bar that night for the same event, according to prosecutors.
