Attorney In NYC homeless killing expects 'revealing' autopsy - marine veteran facing charges

(New York, NY)  --  The lawyer for the former Marine charged with killing a homeless man on a New York subway says his client should be "celebrated" for his actions.  

Attorney Thomas Kenniff made the comments Friday during a radio interview, and said Daniel Penney "put himself in harm's way for the benefit of others."  

Jordan Neely lost consciousness after Penney placed him in a chokehold on a Manhattan subway earlier this month.  

Penny is being charged with second-degree manslaughter.
