Criminal defense: Man faces murder charges in New York

A fatal shooting in upstate in New York has led to the arrest of one man, according to local law enforcement. Police say the 30-year-old man is in custody after a fight at a bar resulted in the death of a 44-year-old man the night of April 22. The man is currently being held without bail ahead of a trial date, and there is no word as to whether he has retained criminal defense counsel at this time. 

According to witnesses at the Eagle's Club in Moriah, an altercation between the two men broke out at the bar. It is unclear who caused the fight, but witnesses agree the argument got out of hand and spilled over into the parking lot. The accused man is believed to have pulled a gun and shot the victim, who was later pronounced dead. 

Witnesses called police, who arrived around 8 p.m. to the scene. Officers on the scene arrested the man and charged him with murder. It is unclear whether they recovered the alleged murder weapon. Their investigation into the incident is still ongoing at this time, and very few details have been released to the public. 

New York law guarantees the accused man the right to face the charges against him with criminal defense counsel at his side. That counsel will carefully review the charges and any evidence the prosecution chooses to submit to the court in advance of the trial. Every effort will be made to represent the man faithfully and strongly as he faces these serious accusations.
