WHITE PLAINS – A Mount Vernon man was found guilty in Westchester County Court in the death of his girlfriend.  Jason Myers, 23, was convicted of manslaughter and concealment of a human corpse.
On or about August 23, 2016, Mt. Vernon Police were contacted by a family member of Ashley McDuffie to report she was missing.
