Yonkers murder suspects arraigned, jailed

Police are expected to release more information today after two men were arraigned on murder charges in connection to a fatal Yonkers shooting that killed a young mother and injured her husband and daughter.

Police executed search warrants in Rockville Centre, Long Island yesterday and arrested Charles Parsley, 26, and Kasaun White, 27, in connection to the fatal April shooting.

The two men allegedly wore UPS uniforms to gain entry to an apartment building at 1159 Yonkers Ave. on April 21 where they fatally shot Sandra Hackley in her apartment. Hackley's husband, Rafael Cornielle, was shot several times and Hackley's daughter also was grazed by a bullet on her leg.

Police have said the couple was targeted but aren't confirming what the motive may have been or if more arrests are coming.
