The boy lost his parents and an older brother in a violent attack in their home.

Police say Kaliek Goode-Ford, 30, of Newburgh, is believed to be the only shooter in Sunday morning's triple homicide.

Goode-Ford was led into Newburgh town court Monday in chains where he pleaded not guilty to the murders of 27-year-old Jimmy Crisantos, 26-year-old Shatavia Crisantos and 9-year-old Giovanni Tambino, who is Shatavia's child from a previous relationship.

A third child was also in the home on Route 300 when the deadly home invasion took place, but thankfully that child was unharmed.

Investigators say Goode-Ford and the victims knew each other, but they're not saying how. They say this was not a random act of violence.

So far, police have not released a motive and are combing the Hudson River for the gun used.

They say Goode-Ford, who previously faced a felony weapons charge in 2016, had a relationship with the victims. He pleaded not guilty in their deaths.

Goode-Ford is expected to be indicted for murder by a grand jury on Friday. He's being held in Orange County Jail without bail.
