The NYPD sergeant who supervised Daniel Pantaleo — the officer responsible for Eric Garner’s 2014 chokehold death — will keep her job and lose 20 vacation days, according to reports Wednesday.

Sgt. Kizzy Adonis was newly promoted on the day Garner died, NYPD officials said. She arrived at the scene after Garner fell unconscious and was accused of failing to properly supervise officers. Her supervision of officers under her command was found lacking, but nothing about her actions caused the use of the banned chokehold or delayed the arrival of medical help for Garner.
