Three suspects arraigned on Murder charge in Amsterdam shooting death

AMSTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Three suspects were arraigned in Amsterdam City Court Thursday evening after a fatal shooting.

All three suspects were charged with Second Degree Murder in connection to Alex Martuscello’s death. The 23-year old was found shot to death just beyond the front door of his Glen Avenue apartment.

The parents of one of the suspects were very emotional in court.

“Don’t resist!” the dad yelled after his son. “Listen to me! Relax!”

The father wanted to speak and make eye contact with his son, but police did not let that happen as they quickly walked the boy out of court in handcuffs.

“Relax, pop!” the father again shouted. “Can you please leave…Can you please let me talk to him?”

Police eventually escorted the father out for his aggressive behavior. Family members reunited on the bottom floor. The mother was in tears.

The three suspects are all from Amsterdam. They are 19-year-old Christopher Malave, 18-year-old Raymond Matros, and a 16-year old. Cameras were not allowed in court for the 16-year-old’s arraignment.

All three suspects were sent to Montgomery County Jail without bail.
