Bronx News Roundup, September 9

Yesterday, after multiple failed negotiations over the past year, Lance Inc., a food company, bought the Stella D'Oro brand. Lance Inc. plans on moving Stella D'Oro cookie production to a plant in Ohio from the local Bronx plant in Kingsbridge.

Unfortunately for workers at the Kingsbridge plant, the purchase of Stella D'Oro ends their year-long strike against the brand's previous owner, Brynwood Partners, and they are now without jobs. Read the Norwood News article about the strike here.

Police reports show that two Bronx narcotics police officers did not investigate a tip-off about a reported drug den in Parkchester. After the officer's failure to investigate the tip, a man was fatally shot outside of the supposed drug den.

The family of Verda Henry, a life-long Bronx resident, is suing a New Rochelle nursing home for neglecting to provide adequate care and not properly treating an infected bedsore that led to Henry's death in 2007.

Yesterday, the trial began for a Bronx man, Tryone Simmons, accused of invading a Yonkers home and raping a woman in 2007. The trial is currently taking place at the state Supreme Court in White Plains. Simmons faces a sentence of eight years in prison for his crime.
