A Brooklyn, New York man has been sentenced to 20 years to life in prison for the murder of a 21-year-old Long Island woman on New Year’s Day in 2022. The sentencing comes nearly two months after the man, Kisjonne Campbell, 25, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, according to Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney.

The investigation revealed that on January 1, 2022, Campbell knocked on the door of Michaelle Jaccis’ home in West Babylon while she was with her twin brother and 15-year-old brother. The 15-year-old answered the door and encountered a man wearing all black with a ski mask around his neck, a jacket, and gray sneakers.

Campbell asked the teenager if he had a phone number for a taxicab company and left after receiving the number. The teenager informed Jaccis about the encounter, and she decided to go for a drive. When she returned home, Campbell attacked her in front of the house.

Jaccis’ brothers heard her scream and rushed to the door, witnessing Campbell violently stabbing her.

The brothers immediately called 911, and by the time they returned, Campbell had fled the scene. However, responding officers from the Suffolk County Police Department quickly located Campbell, who matched the description provided by the brothers. Campbell attempted to escape by jumping over a fence but was apprehended within seven minutes of the initial call.

Jaccis’ 15-year-old brother identified Campbell as the man who knocked on the door and killed their sister.

During the investigation, a knife with a broken tip was discovered in a neighbor’s bushes. Additionally, an autopsy revealed a sharp metal object tip in Jaccis’ skull. A ski mask found nearby tested positive for Campbell’s DNA.

During a two-hour interview with the police, Campbell confessed to having a relationship with Jaccis and admitted to taking a cab from the shelter he was living at to her home. He also admitted to getting into a physical altercation with the victim, punching her in the face. However, he claimed to have blacked out after the punch.

In court on May 8, 2023, Campbell pleaded guilty to second-degree murder before Supreme Court Justice John B. Collins.

Tierney stated, “There is absolutely no justification for this defendant’s violent actions. The brutal manner in which he chose to attack and kill Ms. Jaccis deserves an equally brutal sentence in prison.”
