NEW YORK — Brooklyn-born and bred Keith “Duke” Schneider was a leader in the neo-Nazi-inspired Nationalist Socialist Party. Katherine Boone, a former TV personality, lived in the Marine Park section of the same borough in New York City.

I did a lot of terrible things and God gave me a second chance.”
