The Suffolk County district attorney is expected to recommend a sentence of life without parole for a man convicted for the 2008 murder-for-hire of an attorney on Long Island.

Darnell Festus was convicted of gunning down James DiMartino outside a restaurant in Commack in October of 2008.

Authorities say Festus and another man were hired by the victim's business partner.
