A jealous boyfriend who fatally beat an older man who catcalled his girlfriend on the street last year was sentenced to prison on Thursday.
Branlee Gonzalez, 19, got 1⅓ to four years behind bars for pummeling 69-year-old Lucia Bravo in Inwood in May 2017.
Bravo suffered massive brain trauma, was knocked into a coma and died from his injuries. Another victim was also hurt by the furious fighter.
A disfigured Bravo “died five days [after the attack] without ever regaining consciousness,” prosecutors wrote in court papers.
Gonzalez pleaded guilty to manslaughter and assault on Sept. 6 in Manhattan Supreme Court.
The judge in his case was poised to give him a “youthful offender” deal but eventually backtracked after strong objections by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
The victim’s daughter wrote in a letter to the court that the loss of her father has wrecked their family.
