Sarah Fox Murder Suspect on trial for assault

Dimitri SheinmanDistrict Attorney Robert Morgenthau labeled Dimitri Sheinman the prime suspect in the Sarah Fox murder. However, Sheinman was never charged with the crime.

The decomposed body of the Julliard drama student was stripped of clothes and left in a "posed" position with tulip-tree blossoms sprinkled around it in a heavily wooded section of Inwood Hill Park in northern Manhattan. She was found in May 2004.

The NY Post reported last week:

The prime suspect in the grisly ritual murder of a Juilliard student is getting his day in court — but on unrelated charges he punched a man in the same park where the strangled woman's body was found..

In the unconnected misdemeanor assault case, Sheinman allegedly attacked dog owner Rene Perez, 57, who interceded when the suspect's large Rhodesian Ridgeback grabbed a woman's Chihuahua by the neck last April.

[On Monday, Jan. 23, 2006] both sides agreed to go to trial in Manhattan Criminal Court. No date has been set.

Sheinman is out on $5,000 bail and has been flying back and forth from South Africa, where he now lives, to keep court dates stemming from the fracas.

update Feb. 7, 2006, Dmitri Sheinman was convicted of assault on Monday, Feb. 6, 2005 in Criminal Court in Manhattan.

Dimitri Sheinman convicted Feb. 6th of assaulting a man last year in Inwood Hill Park.

CBS-TV reported yesterday:
The prime suspect in the murder of Julliard student Sarah Fox is found guilty of a different assault.

Dmitri Sheinman was involved in a scuffle at Inwood Hill Park last April with a man who was walking his dog. That man, Rene Perez, told police he was chasing his dog up a hill when Sheinman began to kick the dog.

When Perez told him to stop, Sheinman kicked him in the back. He was convicted Monday, after the jury needed less than a day to come to a decision.

Sheinman is still the prime, and only, suspect in the Sarah Fox case. Sheinman has never been charged with the murder of the 21-year-old, whose dead body was found in Inwood Hill Park in May 2004...

Sheinman's family moved to South Africa after the crime. He is now out on $100,000 bail, and is due back in court in the next few weeks. He could spend one year in jail for the assault conviction.
