Fallen New York Police Department officer Dennis Guerra died last week from injuries suffered in an arson blaze at a Coney Island public housing apartment building. Guerra's patrol partner, Rosa Rodriguez, remains in critical condition. Felony murder charges were brought against Marcell Dockery, 16, who confessed that he set a mattress on fire because he was bored.
