▶ Watch Video: CBS News Live 3
Jordan Neely, the man who Daniel Penny put in a fatal chokehold on a New York City subway train earlier this month, will be mourned at a funeral Friday morning. The Rev. Al Sharpton is expected to deliver the eulogy at Mount Neboh Baptist Church in Harlem.
Neely, a 30-year-old former Michael Jackson impersonator who was homeless, was acting erratically on a train and screaming about being hungry and tired but didn’t attack anyone during the May 1 incident, according to witnesses.
Penny, a 24-year-old Marine veteran, placed Neely in a chokehold from behind, killing him, according to authorities. Penny has been charged with manslaughter, and his attorneys said he was protecting himself and others on the train.
