WHITE PLAINS – A Yonkers man was arraigned on murder and other

The indictment alleges that on the evening of December 7, 2017, Charles

The victim was found by police in an alleyway.

Hill, also charge with murder, was arraigned on February 8.

The case is being prosecuted by Senior Assistant District Attorney Jonathan
