Here are some stories making headlines across the Hudson Valley.
A Florida man faces 20 years to life in prison for a 2005 murder in Yonkers. Christopher Gonzalez pleaded guilty to strangling Angel Serbay of Yonkers, according to the Westchester County District Attorney's Office. Her body was found in a blanket on the shoulder of the Sprain Brook Parkway in Greenburgh. An investigation linked her death to a 2000 cold case and Gonzalez's DNA connected him to both murders. He'll be sentenced next month.
A Cortlandt man is facing charges for allegedly breaking into a deli using a hammer. State police say Jose Erazo tried to break the window at Zio's Italian Deli on Albany Post Road. He then allegedly vandalized a security camera to cover up evidence. Erazo was arraigned and is being held in Westchester County Jail without bail.
Two men from Brooklyn are facing numerous charges after state troopers say they found drugs in their car in the Town of Newburgh. Police say they found the clear bag with MDMA pills and other bags filled with crack-cocaine, oxycodone and other drugs. Andrew Caesar and Maxwell Coddett have both been arraigned and remanded to Orange County Jail without bail.
