Two Rockville Centre residents recently a Yonkers woman and shooting her husband and daughter were sentenced to 75 years to life in state prison on Tuesday.
Charles Parsley, 28, and Kasaun White, 29, both of Old Mill Court, were found guilty in the second-degree murder of Sandra Hackley, 36, and the shooting of her husband and 12-year-old daughter.
Parsley and White were also convicted of second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault and first-degree burglary.
According to the Westchester County District Attorney's Office, in April 2010, White posed as a UPS delivery man to gain access into Hackley's Yonkers Avenue apartment building. When Hackley's husband, Rafael Cornielle, opened the door to accept the "delivery", authorities said the duo opened fire, fatally shooting Hackley and injuring Cornielle and their 12-year-old daughter.

Authorities said the two gunmen fled through the front door of the building, out onto Yonkers Avenue, where witnesses saw them enter a dark-colored pick up truck and flee. A third suspect, English Thomas, 29, of Uniondale — who officials said was the getaway driver — is awaiting trial.
Authorities said they still do not know the motive for targeting Hackley.
