NY1 VIDEO: As NY1 News revisits its 20-year history, the station looks back at reporter Andrew Siff's March 11, 2003 coverage of two undercover detectives who were killed during a gun buy and bust operation on Staten Island.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: Ronnell Wilson would be arrested the following today. He would be convicted of shooting the detectives and sentenced to death, the first federal death sentence in New York in more than 50 years. However, the sentence would be reversed due to prosecutorial error. Wilson is due to be resentenced later this year, but his attorneys have said they will argue his intellectual disabilities are too severe to allow for him to be executed. The slain detectives - Rodney Andrews and James Nemorin - would be posthumously promoted to detective first grade.
