The Stapleton man who allegedly set up the gun buy operation that ended with the death of two Staten Island detectives will be sentenced Friday.
Law enforcement officials say Omar Green is finally set to appear in St. George Supreme Court, after he sentencing was postponed numerous times this year.
Green faces up to 25 years to life after pleading guilty to for second-degree murder charges.
Police say he set up the gun buy and bust that ended in the execution-style deaths of Detectives James Nemorin and Rodney Andrews in March of 2003.
A New York federal court sentenced the gunman, Ronnell Wilson, to death back in March.
It's the first death penalty sentence in New York in more than 50 years.
Wilson's lawyers say they are appealing that decision.
