Here are some stories making headlines across the Hudson Valley.
A Yonkers man will spend 35 years in prison in connection with a decades old murder. Darnell Kidd was convicted in November of killing Jonathan Johnson in 2011. Authorities say Kidd shot Johnson in White Plains during an armed robbery for marijuana. A second Yonkers man, 31-year-old Marcus Chambers, is already serving 20 years for his role in the murder. Kidd was also sentenced to five years of supervised release.
A vehicle pursuit in Yorktown leads to the arrest of a driver, who allegedly flashed a firearm during the incident. Yorktown police say the vehicle was stopped near the Route Six and Mill Street intersection early Saturday morning. They say the driver remained in the vehicle during the standoff and no shots were fired. The suspect was eventually taken out of the vehicle and into state police custody.
Several people are still recovering from a crash in Somers. Firefighters say an SUV and truck hit into each other on Route 35 on Saturday. First responders found the driver trapped inside the truck with serious injuries and had to remove the driver's door to free the person. The victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
