Gang Member Gets 35 Years for Huntington Station Murder

A Bloods street gang member was sentenced Tuesday to 35-years-to-life in prison for the murder of a 38-year-old man in his hometown of Huntington Station during a robbery in 2007.

James W. McArthur, 22, of Melville, pulled a gun on Alexander Diaz around 3 a.m. on the morning of July 15, 2007 on First Avenue. When Diaz’ uncle, Sebastian Bonilla-Euceda interceded, McArthur shot him once in the chest.  Bonilla-Euceda died at Huntington Hospital 12 hours later.
