GOSHEN – A Newburgh man pled guilty in Orange County Court on Thursday
to manslaughter in connection with the August 1, 2016 killing of a Newburgh
city man. When sentenced in September, Devin Isaac is expected to be sentenced
to 18 years in state prison.
Isaac, 18, who was 17 at the time of the killing, shot Deandric Little,
29, to death at the corner of South and Chambers street.
Just before the murder, the victim and another man argued with Isaac nearby.
At the end of the argument, the third man told Isaac to shoot Little and
he pulled the trigger, hitting the victim in the torso. Another person
drove Little to St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital where he walked in
on his own, but later died.
After the shooting, Isaac fled the area, but was captured three weeks
later on Staten Island where he was in possession of another gun. The
gun used in the Newburgh homicide was never recovered.
He was also arrested on Staten Island for possessing a loaded gun. When
sentenced on that charge, it will run consecutively to the Orange County
