The New Jersey man convicted of brutally beating a mother in a home invasion caught on a nanny cam has been sentenced to life in prison.
Shawn Custis was convicted of aggravated assault, robbery and other crimes for the 2013 attack in Millburn June 1st.
The woman’s 3-year-old daughter was also home at the time but wasn’t injured. The viscous attack lasted several minutes with Custis also kicked the woman and throwing her down a flight of stairs.
Custis’s attorney argued that the police investigation was biased because a white officer responding to the crime scene was heard on video using a racial slur. Custis is black.
